Strawberry Shortcake

Strawberry shortcake huckleberry pie, the letter you land on will be your guy!  Anyone remember that rhyme?  I remember singing that while jump roping when I was little and having the best time!  And you'll have the best time making and eating your own semi-homemade Strawberry Shortcake!  I'll tell you everything you need to know to wow your guests after dinner!

Freshly picked strawberries
2 cups heavy cream
2 oz sugar
1 dash vanilla
Pound cake

1.  Homemade whipped cream -- this part only takes 5 short minutes.  Just add the heavy cream, sugar, and vanilla into a mixer and whip for about 5 minutes until nice and fluffy.

2.  Strawberries - cut stems off of strawberries and put in a bowl.  Then add a dash of sugar and mix together to make the strawberries extra sweet!

3.  Pound cake -- Make your own from scratch or take the easy way out and buy store bought pre sliced pound cake.  It tastes delicious and is a good shortcut!

4.  Place pound cake on a plate, place a few scoops of strawberries on top of the pound cake, then top with the homemade whipped cream.

5.  Enjoy!

Your guests will love this extremely easy and absolutely divine dessert.  It's a great summer treat or good for anytime of the year because who doesn't love eating Strawberry Shortcake!?  Happy Spring!
