Strawberries are on sale everywhere, so for dessert last night I made a really easy treat.
I saw an article in People magazine when I was at the hair salon last week, waiting my turn to be transformed into a younger me!
The article featured easy recipes by the folks from the Today Show.
You can tell by the title of this post that the recipe calls for using mason jars, but just a bowl will do! It looks amazing when completed.
Here is what you will need:
1 (16 oz.) carton of fresh strawberries, stemmed and hulled
1/2 cup sugar
1 (16 oz) fresh or frozen pound cake loaf, thawed (Sara Lee’s the best)
1 (8 0z.) carton of blueberries
Vanilla ice cream or vanilla frozen yogurt
Whipped cream or frozen whipped topping
1. Place mason jars in freezer until ready to assemble sundaes. Slice strawberries into 1/8″ thick slices. Toss strawberries with sugar in a medium bowl, cover and chill 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
2. Cut pound cake into 3/4″ cubes.
3. Toss blueberries with strawberries: set aside. Place 1 scoop ice cream into each chilled jar. Layer cake cubes evenly over ice cream. Top evenly with berries. Repeat layers. Top each sundae with whipped cream or topping. Serve immediately or chill up to 30 minutes.
I bought the blueberries, but forgot to use them. It was good just the same.
This is a really good recipe for summer, no baking, also good for last minute, unexpected guests.
Today is Sunday, the day of rest, so this would be a simple, easy, not much time or work dessert, for after dinner tonight.
Hope you all have a blessed Sunday, and a joyful, week ahead.
