This is a wonderful way to serve strawberry shortcake to a crowd because it eliminates all of the last minute assembly. It's so creamy, rich and fruity... one of my personal favorites. A nice recipe to have in your pocket year round. I usually have most of the ingredients always on hand, which makes it easy to serve an impressive dessert when unexpected company comes. The addition of sweetened condensed milk combined with the strawberries is unbelievable.

*Needs a minimum of 2 hours to chill in the fridge.*
