This is a recipe I grabbed in the grocery store near the Jello puddings display...I believe it is on jello.com 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 serve...it's been a big hit at barbeques and family gatherings.
