Easy Strawberry Shortcake

Who doesn’t love strawberry shortcake? It’s sweet and fresh and delicious! This version is super easy to make and you can serve it in a jar, mug, glass or ramekin. Sucha cute idea for a dinner party or for a holiday party! Have you ever tried strawberry shortcake before? Have you ever made it at home? This is the time!

It’s All About The Layers!

This recipe is so easy and quick! You only have to bake the cookie and the rest basically makes itself. Soak some strawberries with maple syrup (or sugar) and let them release all those sweet juices. While you let them sit, you can start preparing the cookies and, once they cooled down you need to start layering the goodies inside your jar. You can use frozen strawberries if you can’t find fresh ones. This way you can prepare this dessert all year!
