More About This Recipe

  • There’s a fantastic trend hitting restaurants and foodie websites and you’re two seconds away from enjoying it yourself. Dessert shooters — teensy little two-bite tastes of decadent desserts — are the hottest way to serve up a sweet treat without all the calories and time requirements that go into the making of a big, huge hunk of calorie-laden goodies. With the summer season right around the corner, why not whip up a batch of everyone’s favorite seasonal sweet — Strawberry Shortcake — in a perfectly pint-sized package: Strawberry Shortcake Shooters! Bake a white Betty Crocker cake according to package directions. Since that one cake will yield about 20 of these little dessert shooters, try cutting the cake in half and freezing the second portion for one of those days when you’ve got to pull something snappy and spectacular together fast. You can use 10 small shot glasses, or if you’re using large shot glasses, you’ll be able to make about 6. Pop a dollop of whipped topping over the the whole thing. Don’t go easy. The more the merrier in this case. Now would be an appropriate time to lick fingers. Or sneak a shooter. This recipe makes enough for nine, right? Garnish each shot glass with a small, whole strawberry. Serve the shooters immediately, or refrigerate them until ready to serve, up to 1 hour. (Refrigerating them any longer will leave you a messy mush of cake at the bottom.)
