Strawberry Shortcake: Berry Brick Road and Strawberry Shortcake: Bloomin’ Berry Garden Giveaway

Desserts For Mommy 'n Me
Everyone’s Berry Best Friend Returns in Two Fun-Filled Adventures Arriving on DVD March 6
Strawberry Shortcake is back just in time for Spring and is so sweet you will need two helpings!  Touching the hearts of children for decades, this wildly successful franchise is back with two more magical tales, Strawberry Shortcake: Berry Brick Road and Strawberry Shortcake: Bloomin’ Berry Garden! First, Strawberry Shortcake: Berry Brick Road follows Strawberry and her friends as they retell the classic “Wonderful Wizard of Oz.” Next, Strawberry Shortcake: Bloomin’ Berry Garden shows that it’s time for garden growing fun with Strawberry and her friends as they prepare for the Spring Flower Festival!
The traditional strawberry shortcake recipe is a traditional family favorite, but there are plenty of other new, delicious berry-inspired desserts to try too! This feature will give families some tips and tricks for making fun, yummy Strawberry Shortcake-inspired desserts, including blueberry muffins and a tasty raspberry tart!
Enter at the bottom of this feature to win a copy of both Strawberry Shortcake DVDs!
Berry S’Mores
This take on a classic summer treat is sure to please the kids without giving them an insane sugar high! All you need are graham crackers, softened cream cheese and sliced berries (adding in chocolate is optional as these are delicious without it). Just break the graham cracker in half, spread about a table spoon of cream cheese on one side, add some berries on top, and put the other half of the graham cracker on top. Now you have an easy, delicious, healthy s’more to enjoy!
Blueberry Muffins
These delicious blueberry muffins are an easy six-ingredient fix for your berry cravings! All you need is a cup and a half of flour, 1 egg, a half cup of milk, one fourth cup of oil, a half cup of sugar, and one cup of fresh or frozen berries. First, preheat your oven to 400 degrees and grease a muffin pan. Next, beat the egg, and stir in the milk and oil, then add your dry ingredients (the batter should be lumpy). Gently stir in the blueberries and fill your muffin tins, then bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the muffins are a nice golden brown.
Strawberry Trifle
A yummy strawberry trifle is the perfect treat to eat while enjoying the new Strawberry Shortcake DVDs! To make it you need four tablespoons of sugar, two pints of fresh strawberries (chopped), four ounces of softened cream cheese, two cups of whipping cream, one pre-made pound cake, and one half cup of melted, seedless raspberry jelly. First, stir two tablespoons of sugar into the sliced strawberries. Next, beat the remaining two tablespoons of sugar into the cream cheese. Whip the cream until stiff peaks form, and then gently fold the cream into the cream cheese/sugar mixture. Then, cut the pound cake into slices that are about 1/3 inch thick. Arrange a layer of those slices at the bottom of a glass bowl (or a festive clear glass container of your choosing), then drizzle with the melted jelly. Next, add a layer of strawberries and a layer of the cream cheese mixture. Continue layering, making sure that the last layer is the cream cheese mixture. Garnish with strawberries.
Raspberry Tart
This raspberry tart is both yummy and simple to make (with a little help from mom and dad)! To start, gather a cup of flour, a stick of butter, two tablespoons of confectioner’s sugar, four cups of fresh raspberries, and eight ounces of raspberry jam. Blend together the flour, butter and sugar, and chill for one hour. Then, pat the chilled crust into a tart pan, and bake at 375 degrees for 10 minutes. Cool the crust, and then arrange the raspberries on top of it. Last, microwave your raspberry jam until it begin to boil, then pour the jam over the fruit. Cover and refrigerate for an hour, then enjoy!
Blackberry Cobbler
Blackberry cobbler is an cinch with this easy, delectable recipe! All you need is four cups of fresh blackberries, one tablespoon of lemon juice, one egg, one cup of sugar, one cup of flour, and six tablespoons of melted butter. Start by preheating your oven to 375 degrees. Next, place blackberries in a lightly greased square baking dish, and sprinkle with lemon juice. Stir together the egg, sugar, and flour, and sprinkle over fruit. Next, drizzle melted butter across the topping, and bake for 35 minutes, or until the cobbler is lightly browned and bubbly. Enjoy!
