Strawberry Vanilla Cream DessertStrawberry Vanilla Cream Dessert,  a pecan crust, layers of cream cheese-whipped topping-confectioner sugar, vanilla pudding with fresh sliced strawberries, then topped with whipped topping and a strawberry.  This is the perfect dessert to take to any summer event.

I was looking through an older cookbook that was put together by the Junior League of Charleston WV when I saw this recipe.  I have  made versions of this, using chocolate, banana, lemon, vanilla, or butterscotch pudding, but this one had fresh strawberries folded into the pudding and I thought it really sounded good. This recipe,  Strawberry Cream Dessert won first place in its division in the 1983 WV Strawberry Festival. The original recipe used strawberry instant pudding, but I have not been able to find that.

This recipe can be made in a 9×13 inch pan, and would make it easier to transport.  I used 9oz dessert glasses on this day, and made 10 desserts.

Strawberry Vanilla Cream Dessert can be made a day ahead, or early the day you will be serving it.  If making it ahead, do not put on the whipped topping garnish.  It holds up best if added right before serving.

A few years ago, two of my little grandsons were visiting from out of town. They love to do things with me in the kitchen, so this is one of the desserts the 3 year old made. STRAWBERRY CREAM DESSERT

Fresh strawberries are in abundance right now, so this is the perfect time to try this dessert.

Recipe card includes directions for making it in a 9×13 inch pan or in individual serving glasses.
