Strawberry Shortcake Squares

Chris T.


This is a recipe I grabbed in the grocery store near the Jello puddings display...I believe it is on also. It is not your typical shortcake but it is REALLY good and easy to make. I like to make it the night before so I can just grab it the next day and's been a big hit at barbeques and family gatherings.
