This dessert for a crowd is a recipe I got years ago after eating it at a church luncheon. It is delicious, easy, and feeds a crowd.
I have served this for family parties and showers. It is similar to a shortcake with a cheesecake twist. The original recipe calls for raspberries, which I love, but not every one in my house enjoys raspberries. So when I make it, I usually use strawberries. Most of the time I macerate the strawberries in sugar or use a package of danish dessert (following the directions for the fruit sauce) and add the strawberries to that.
I made this for Easter dessert and decided to use purchased strawberry glaze. I have to say that I prefer the macerated strawberries or danish dessert version much better than the glaze.
