Recipe: Grilled Strawberry Shortcake

Grilled Strawberry Shortcake
A new twist on an old favorite!

4 1/2 cups strawberries, sliced
1/4 cup sugar
1 (10.75 ounce) frozen pound cake, thawed
2 cups frozen whipped topping, thawed

In medium bowl, combine strawberries and sugar. Mix well. Set aside. Slice pound cake into 12 slices. Grill on contact grill until golden brown and grill marks appear. On 6 plates layer 1 slice pound cake, 1/4 cup strawberry mixture, 2 tablespoons whipped topping. Repeat layers. Garnish with remaining strawberries. Makes 6 servings.

Recipe can be found on page 233 in  

Diet Tip: Cut calories by swapping the pound cake for sugar free angel food cake, the sugar for sugar substitute and use fat free whipped topping for a low cal dessert your whole family will love.

It is so easy to get into a rut and cook the same old thing over and over again. To get out of that rut I like to think of new ways to recreate the recipes that I enjoy cooking. It changes an old standby recipe into something special.
