  1. Beat cream, sugar, and vanilla extract together in a chilled glass or metal bowl with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form.
  2. Place the bottom half of one doughnut on a plate. Spoon 1/4 cup whipped cream onto the doughnut, arrange 1/4 of the sliced strawberries over the whipped cream, and then spoon another 1/4 cup whipped cream over the strawberries. Top with remaining doughnut half. Repeat with remaining doughnuts, cream, and strawberries.


  • Cook's Note:
  • We chose not to sweeten the strawberries since the doughnut is sweeter than a traditional shortcake biscuit. However, if you'd like, you can add 1 tablespoon of sugar to the sliced strawberries.
  • You can also use doughnut holes and create a layered dessert in a glass jar. Slice the doughnut holes into halves for the layers.

After you clean your berries use an egg slicer for slicing the berries and they come out the same size. lay them across as you would a hard boiled egg. Makes it faster and easier.
