Strawberry Shortcake in a Jar

Serves: 6

Ingredients

  • 1 pkg (15.25 oz) white cake mix
  • 1 pkg (1 lb) Foxy Strawberries, divided
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 pkg (8 oz) brick-style plain cream cheese
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup 35% heavy cream
  • 1/3 cup icing sugar, sifted

Preparation

  1. Prepare cake mix according to package directions; let cool completely. Tear cake into enough pieces to make 3 cups (reserve remaining cake for another use). 
  2. Meanwhile, cut 3 strawberries in half lengthwise; set aside. Hull and slice remaining strawberries; toss with granulated sugar and lemon juice. Let stand for 10 minutes. 
  3. Beat cream cheese with vanilla until light and fluffy. In separate bowl, beat cream until stiff peaks form; beat in icing sugar. Fold whipped cream into cream cheese until blended. 
  4. Layer half of the torn cake pieces, sliced strawberries and cream cheese mixture among 6 (1-cup) jars. Repeat layers. Garnish each serving with halved strawberry. 


Tip: Substitute mascarpone cheese for cream cheese if desired.
