What a wonderful dessert to have to finish off your Easter Dinner! It can be made pretty quickly too!
1 Loaf Pound Cake, thawed and cut into 1″ squares
1 1/2 Cups Sugar (divided)
2 Packages Cream Cheese (8 oz.)
3 Tbls Orange Juice
2 or 3 Pints Fresh Strawberries, sliced
4 Cups Whipped Cream
In a bowl, toss strawberries with 1/2 Cup of Sugar. Set aside.
In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, orange juice, and remaining sugar until smooth. Add 3 Cups Whipped Cream. Set aside.
In a separate bowl, add 1 Cup of the strawberries you tossed with sugar. I like to smash these to drizzle over the pound cake. Set these aside for now.
In a trifle dish (or a large pretty clear dish) , place half of the Pound Cake in the bottom. Drizzle half of the smashed strawberries over the pound cake. Cover with half of the Cream Cheese mixture and half of the strawberries. Repeat layers.
End layers with strawberries, You may want to buy an extra pint to add fresh strawberries to the top and I end with a cup of whipped cream on top in the middle with a few strawberries neatly arranged on top.
This is a picture of my sister, Linda Collier's peach cobbler. She and my sister Sondra all learned how to make this easy peach cobbler from our mom. You won't find a tastier or easier way to make cobbler.
