Strawberry Cream Dessert

This is such an easy and delicious dessert to make.  I made this for our bridge group and everyone loved it.  My 10-year old grandson loves strawberries and he was considering having this for his birthday cake this month.  We will just have to wait and see what he decides.

  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 5 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 pkg. (3-oz.) strawberry gelatin
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 lbs. fresh strawberries, hulled, divided
  • 1 pkg. (8-oz.) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 can (14-oz.) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 carton (12-oz.) frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 1 prepared angel food cake (8 to 10-oz.), cut into 1-inch cubes

For glaze, in a large saucepan, combine the sugar, cornstarch and gelatin.  Add water and stir until smooth.  Cook and stir over medium-high heat until mixture begins to boil.  Cook and stir 1 to 2 minutes longer or until thickened. Remove from the heat; cool completely.  Cut half of the strawberries into quarters; fold into glaze.

In a small bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth.  Beat in milk until blended.  Fold in whipped topping.

In a 9 x 13-inch baking dish, layer half the cake cubes, glaze and cream mixture.  Repeat layers.  Cut remaining strawberries in half and arrange over the top.  Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight.

12 to 16 servings.
