INGREDIENTS

  • 1 stick butter, melted
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup pecans, finely chopped
  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 large tub whipped topping, divided
  • 16 ounces strawberries, fresh
  • 1 tub (13.5 oz) strawberry glaze

INSTRUCTIONS

LAYER 1
  1. 1 cup flour, 1 stick butter (melted), 1/2 cup nuts, chopped, Press into greased pan. Bake 325 degrees for 25 minutes. 
LAYER 2
  1. 8 oz cream cheese, 1 cup powdered sugar, 1/2 large bowl whipped topping. Mix and pour into cooled crust.
LAYER 3
  1. Top with remaining whipped topping. 
LAYER 4
  1. Spoon and spread strawberry glaze over whipped topping. Top with sliced strawberries. 

NOTES

  • Use real butter, not margarine, for the flakiest crust. You can use more or less of the strawberry glaze. I only use about 2/3 of the container. 
Strawberry Delight is a new spin on an old classic. It’s like the springtime version of 4-Layer Delight. I made this dessert for our family Easter dinner last weekend and Mike said I knocked it out of the park!

He was very lucky I even made it because there was a strawberry shortage going on last weekend. I just happened to have a carton of strawberries that I was going to use for another purpose hidden in the refrigerator.

LAYER 1 – THE CRUST
Strawberry Delight
The crust is one of the things that really makes Strawberry Delight what it is today. It’s a solid, nutty foundation for a super delicious dessert.
Tip! Divide the dough into fourths to make it easier to press into the pan.
 
LAYER 2 – THE CREAM CHEESE
The cream cheese layer is ultra rich and creamy and adds a lot of flavor to the dessert. The cream cheese will be easier to mix together if you let it soften to room temperature.
Tip! You can use the 1/3 less fat cream cheese to save some fat and calories.
LAYER 3 – THE WHIPPED TOPPING
I like to use Cool Whip Whipped Topping and I often use the lite version.

LAYER 4 – THE STRAWBERRIES
The strawberries and the thick glaze are what makes this dessert a showstopper.

Now, I’ll admit that it’s not easy getting the glaze on top of the whipped topping, but it’s worth it. I use the “spoon-and-smear” method where I spoon a little glaze on top of the whipped topping and then smear it around as best as I can.

It doesn’t have to be perfect. The strawberries are going to cover it up anyway.
Strawberry Delight
And when the bright red, juicy strawberries are all sliced and spread across the top, I can’t wait to dig in! It’s like springtime in my mouth.

I have a feeling I’ll be making this recipe for many years to come. I hope you’ll try it and leave your feedback in the comments below.
