      Good questions, Kris. They are best served after you make them so they don’t get too soggy, but I think they could be kept in the refrigerator for a couple hours.

    Yum!!! I love strawberry shortcake! It reminds me of summertime, playing outside when I was a kid, with not a care in the world 🙂 Thanks for this fun recipe! I’d love for you to visit my blog, where I highlight two “farm to table” restaurants!

    This looks so DELIOUSIOUS!!! I’m definitely going to have to make this for my family. Too bad that we don’t have anywhere to hand-pick Fresh Strawberries ourselves, or any other kind of Fresh Fruits, that would be so wonderful to do with my family. Thank you so much for posting these receipes, I will be trying them out for sure?

        I make these and I sell them I live in a very small country town and everyone loves strawberries here. I have to buy store bought ones but it’s the same with different taste. I decorate the mason jars and they fly like hot cakes.

      You’re welcome, Jeanette. I love simple summer desserts…well, anything with strawberries is great. A little healthy, a little sweet. Perfect.

    What’s more fun that Strawberry shortcake in the spring? Making them in these adorable single serving mason jars! Love this, what a great idea, I bet the kids love having their own!!!

      Thanks for the party! I love fresh strawberries this time of year. I can’t wait to make a crisp and the many other strawberry desserts in my recipe book!

    Hi Erin, this sounds like the perfect summer pudding. It’s strawberry season here at the moment and I think this dessert would go down well as a nice change from strawberries and yogurt or ice cream!

      Yes! It’s perfect with fresh strawberries. Absolutely wonderful. This would change it up from the yogurt and ice cream in a good way 🙂 Enjoy!
