Strawberry Shortcake

Strawberries are everywhere right now. I know our berry patches are turning out some amazing strawberries and they are just begging to be eaten, cooked with and enjoyed while they are at their peak. I love eating strawberries on their own but also like to add them to desserts during the summer.  For dessert not too long ago, I decided to do a slightly different take on strawberry shortcake and use a cheesecake style filling in place of the traditional whipped cream.

Make the best of summer's fresh fruit in this strawberry cheesecake shortcake.

Strawberry Shortcake is always a huge hit for dessert and the plus is that it is really easy to make but looks like it was a lot harder. In this recipe fresh strawberries get a hint of extra sugar to make them extra juicy. The shortcakes are then layered with a yummy cheesecake flavored filling and the juicy strawberries for a dessert you will have you asking for seconds {and thirds}.
