How to make an easy No Bake Strawberry Shortcake Dessert:

  • The shortcake comes from crushed Golden Oreos. Shortbread would also be amazing. Crush the cookies and line the pan with them.
  • Mix up some instant vanilla pudding. You could use sugar-free if you want, or use lemon or cheesecake flavor. Fold in some whipped topping. Layer that mixture with a pound of fresh strawberries.
  • Then top the whole thing with more whipped topping and more crushed cookies.

The hardest part is waiting for it to set. You can see from the photos I didn’t wait long enough. #doasIsaynotasIdo

(Yes, you can use fresh whipped cream. See the recipe notes.)
