Strawberry Shortcake in a Jar

Happy Monday, sweet friends! I am absolutely exhausted after this weekend, but it was very productive and definitely fun! After a date night, running a 5k and major amounts of cleaning/cooking, we hosted our friends for a Superbowl party last night! One of my favorite dishes from the party had to be the strawberry shortcake in a mason jar. Strawberry shortcake is one of my absolute favorites, and desserts in a jar are so much fun! Here is this super easy recipe. 

Ingredients (serves 12)
- 4 containers of fresh strawberries
- 2 tablespoons of white sugar
- 15-20 cooked biscuits (I bought a bag of frozen biscuits and cooked them according to the instructions on the bag
- 1 large container of heavy whipping cream
- 1 tsp of vanilla
- 1 tablespoon of confectionary sugar
- 12 mason jars

Instructions
1. Wash and cut all of the strawberries. Sprinkle white sugar all over the strawberries and mix gently. Set aside for 20 minutes to let the sugar create a glaze over the strawberries. 


2. Cut the biscuits into thin slices (2-3 per whole biscuit).

3. Mix/beat the whipping cream, vanilla and confectionary sugar until peaks form and the cream is thick. I used my KitchenAid mixer on a high setting. Just be careful that you do not over beat the cream. 


4. Begin to assemble the layers of biscuit, strawberries and whipped cream. I started with a biscuit, then strawberries and then whipped cream. I then added another biscuit, whipped cream and finally strawberries. 

6. Add the top back to your mason jars and refrigerate until ready to use. I made mine about 2 hours before our event. 

Here are some more pictures of these strawberry desserts, and the rest of our Superbowl party!
