Picnic Dessert

I’m joining This Blessed Nest on a picnic :)

My favorite part of a picnic is the red and white tablecloth!

My next favorite thing…Dessert!!!

I’m bringing Sugar Cookie Shortcake!!

Now I am a chocolate lover to say the very least!

This is really the ONLY dessert that stands a chance in my chocolate filled dreams…


1 roll refrigerated cookie dough

2 T. of sugar

1 lb fresh strawberries

1 box vanilla instant pudding

1 c. cold milk

3/4 cup whipping cream

In the spirit of cooking in haste…I’ll give you a few options throughout the recipe :)

Heat oven to 350 degrees. 

Split cookie dough roll in half and spread dough in a 9” round pie or cake pan.  Either line your dish with foil or use disposable to make it easy to get the giant cookie out! (I use foil pans and then rinse and reuse each time) 

Before putting each cookie in the oven, sprinkle a tablespoon of sugar over each – YUMMY! (If you forget…like me…you can do it when you pull it out of the oven too)

Let these cool…and while they do…mix 1 cup of milk with the instant pudding mix.  Whisk it until it’s thick.

Also, use mixer to beat whipping cream until formed. (Frozen whipped cream works also…just not quite as rich)

Mix the pudding mix and the whip cream together.  Lick your fingers when you do this :)  Now wash them – we’re going to a picnic!!

Slice your strawberries reserving  a few for garnish.  (Frozen strawberries will work too.)

Layer cookie, mixture and sliced strawberries. Use a little less than half of the mixture.

Again…layer cookie, mixture and sliced strawberries.

Top off with remaining mixture and garnish with strawberries.

Love this, I have a summer dessert that I use angel food cake, stawberries and pudding mix also, the only difference is I also add sourcream to my pudding mix, can't wait to try a sugar cookie version, because sugar cookies are my favorite.

Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful starwberry filled summer

Oh, Tenneil,

He is a cutie!
I have that same plate!
I also made something today with strawberries and whipped cream in it, but used puff pastry instead of sugar cookie dough.
Great minds, huh?
Yeah, our dessert didn't last very long, either.
P.S. I am working on my Shop the House! Really I am. I am doing my guest room.
I may have it up on Friday.
