This is very easy to make. My younger son helped me make this for dessert tonight. Strawberry shortcake is my fav... and it's a good treat to start the summer with.

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This is a cool and yummy take on strawberry shortcake. The two different puddings layered in a dish with vanilla wafers and strawberries is not only beautiful but is delicious on top of the pound cake. The cheesecake pudding makes this rich while the strawberry pudding just enhances the overall strawberry flavor. You could easily eat the pudding layer on its own. This would be a great dessert if serving a large crowd. Just slice up the pound cake, set out the strawberry sauce and pudding, then everyone can build their own.


2 box
strawberry cream Jell-O pudding, 3.4 oz each
2 box
cheesecake Jell-O pudding, 3.4 oz. each
2 c
fresh cut strawberries
1 box
vanilla wafer cookies
pound cake
1 pkg
tub whipped topping, 16 oz.
1 pkg
strawberry sauce

  • 7Top with whipped cream and a few crushed vanilla wafers.
  • 8Set into ice box for 2 hours before serve.
  • 9Slice pound cake, spread sauce on a slice of pound cake.
  • 10Add your layered pudding mix on top. It comes out like strawberry shortcake with cheese cake.
