Strawberry Shortcake in a Glass ~ Sobremesa de Morango na Taça

Photo by Priscillakittycat

I’m finally getting around to writing and posting new recipes that have accumulated over several months.  The summer’s routine is nice because we have a flex schedule (Mondays off); I have an extra day to write, paint, photograph, go to yoga class…or just veg out.  The veg out part doesn’t really happen because there is always something to do or create.

This dessert came from a birthday idea at work.  Before our boss’s birthday she was asked what type of dessert she would love to have on her birthday.  Her answer was:  Strawberries, Pound Cake and Whipped Cream.  I love people who are easy to please.  For her birthday we layered a large serving plate with Sara Lee pound cake, then added sliced strawberries that had been sprinkled with sugar and left in a bowl for 10 minutes.  Last, we slathered on the Cool Whip, whipped cream.  Our boss was so grateful for this delightful creation.

Although Cool Whip might taste good, I’m afraid to read the list of ingredients.  Something tells me it’s not that healthy.  So for the individual strawberry shortcakes you see in the glasses, I made the whipped cream.  A lot less sugar and most likely more healthy.  This is a dessert that will impress people because it looks pretty and tastes quite good.


Finalmente estou tendo tempo para postar as receitas que vem acumulando.  Durante o verão trabalhamos horas extra durante quatro dias e temos folga no quinto dia.  O meu quinto dia é segunda feira.  Te sendo bom porque tenho mais tempo para pintar, ir na aula de yoga, tirar fotografias, cozinhar, etc…

A ideia para esta sobremesa veio quando perguntamos para a nossa chefa o que ela gostaria de ter de sobremesa no dia do aniversário.  Ela disse:  morangos, bolo Sara Lee e chantilly.  Gosto de pessoas que são faceis de agradar.  No dia do aniversário forramos uma travessa com fatias do bolo e cubrimos com os pedaços de morangos que foram polvilhados com um pouqinho de açucar e reservados durante 10 minutos.  Por ultimo espalhamos os chantilly. Recomendo esta sobremesas para jantares em casa ou festinhas de criança porque é fácil fazer e todo mundo gosta.  Na foto você vê a versão individual que fiz em casa.  Ao inves de usar chantilly comprado, eu preparei o chantilly.  Assim é mais saudável.
