A couple of weeks ago I got to guest post this Cream Cheese Strawberry Shortcake recipe on Tatertots and Jello. To say that I was thrilled to be invited to guest post there would be something of an under-exaggeration. I was THRILLLLLLLED!!!! (I know, I know, bad spelling doesn’t *really* change the meaning of the word. Cut a girl some slack, won’t ya?) 😉
Back in my pre-blogging days a crafty friend of mine introduced me to her blog obsession: Tatertots & Jello. When I called her last year to tell her how much fun I had having lunch with the lovely Jen at her darling cottage she almost died! She now thinks I am a big deal just because Jen is nice enough to let me be her fangirl. Haha. Little does she know! 😉
Anyway . . . on to the recipe. I want to share a summer recipe with you that is majorly delish: Cream Cheese Strawberry Shortcake. In the past I have always made individual strawberry shortcakes that have an almost biscuit-like consistency, but WOW is this simpler! A woman at my church gave me this recipe, which she had tweaked a bit from the original, and then I tweaked it a bit farther. We ended up making it for our entire church congregation and it was a huge hit. I hope that you enjoy it too!

- 1 cup sugar
- 1 stick butter (1/2 cup)

- 1 cup whipping cream
- 1 (8 oz) package cream cheese

- 6 cups (about 2 lbs) fresh strawberries, sliced
