Strawberry Shortcake

I might as well add another strawberry recipe since we're on a strawberry kick. This is definitely one of my top 5 favorite desserts. I've had plenty of strawberry shortcakes with the cake, the strawberries, and the whipped cream, but this is SO much better!

Strawberry Shortcake

2 packages cream cheese, softened
2 c. powdered sugar
1 c. sour cream
1 tub cool whip
1 t. vanilla
1/4 t. almond extract
1 pound cake, cut into cubes (angel food cake would work too, but we like pound cake)
2 packages strawberries, sliced

Mix first 6 ingredients in large bowl with electric mixer until smooth. Layer pound cake, cream cheese mixture, and strawberries in a large bowl or trifle dish and top with remaining cream cheese mixture.

I will vouch for the deliciousness of this dessert!!!!!!! It is one of my top 5 also, and I've had some pretty good desserts before! I am extremely lucky to have you iron chefstresses to feed me. :)

I look forward to the day you write a cook book and I can get an autograph...

Thanks for the sweet comments! Kelli- I made it for Sunday dinner a couple of weeks ago; I had a bunch of strawberries to use and wanted to try the recipe.
