Strawberry Shortcake

This is my mother-in-law's recipe!  It's a summer favorite and a huge hit at family gatherings!  The fresh strawberries combined with the cake and cream cheese topping are delish!
Just use my Gluten Free White Cake recipe!

White sheet cake
2 8 ounce packages cream cheese, softened
2 cups powdered sugar
8 ounces frozen whipped topping, mostly thawed
1 package Strawberry Danish Dessert
5 - 6 cups strawberries, sliced

Make white cake and bake in a cookie sheet (13 x 18 inches) for 20 minutes.  Cool completely.  Whip together cream cheese and powdered sugar.  Add whipped topping and mix completely.  Spread on cooled cake.  Cook Danish Dessert according to package directions, using the Pie Glaze recipe on the box (1 3/4 cup water to 1 package Danish Dessert.)  Let cool.  Stir in strawberries.  Spread berry mixture over top of cake.  Chill.  Store in refrigerator.

  1. I may give this one a try. I probably will have to use a ready made cake mix though, if I'm too lazy to whip it up myself. I love strawberry desserts!
