3 ingredient strawberry shortcake,

 

We wanted to come up with a way to always have easy desserts on hand.  Strawberry shortcake is probably one of the easiest desserts to assemble.  And if all the ingredients were frozen, then it would really rock. .  But it would also be handy to be like a single serving strawberry shortcake so we could whip up only two for our household.   Or if I or the hubby has a craving we could have an amazing snack by making only one.

Can I use fresh strawberries instead of frozen Strawberries:

Yes, you can use fresh strawberries but you will probably need to sweeten them a little.  And then allow them to set out so that the sugar can draw out the natural juices.  The best rule of thumb is to add a little sugar then taste them and then add more if you wish.   Whether you use fresh strawberries or frozen strawberries you need to make sure they have plenty of juice for this strawberry shortcake.
