Strawberry Shortcake Cookie Cups

Every memorial day my family gets together for a picnic. We tend to have typical picnic/BBQ food like hamburgers, hot dogs, potato salad, and pasta salad.

I’m usually in charge of dessert. After a large meal we like something light that my grandma would say “just slides down”.

Last year, we really enjoyed the Patriotic Poke Cake because it was light and fruity.

I wanted to stick with something along those lines. Take a look at these Strawberry Shortcake Cookie Cups!
