Assemble the layers

Vienna Fingers. Dip Vienna fingers in strawberry juice and arrange in the bottom of a 9×13 dish. If you can’t find Keebler Vienna fingers, you could use vanilla oreos.

Vanilla Pudding. In a medium bowl whisk together pudding and milk. Spread half the pudding mixture over the cookies. Top with ⅓ the strawberries.

Repeat. Add another layer of lady fingers, the rest of the pudding and ⅓ the strawberries.
Whipped Topping. In a bowl, whip the cream and powdered sugar until it becomes thick. Spread over strawberries and top with the remaining strawberries.
Chill. Place in the refrigerator to chill for 2-3 hours before serving. ENJOY!

Beware of soggy cookies!

The longer this cake sits in the fridge, the more the cookies soak up the strawberry juice and moisture from the pudding. I would suggest not keeping it for more than 3 days. But no worries! It should be devoured before then because it’s so good!

This recipe does need to be chilled for 2-3 hours before being served, so you can for sure make it a couple hours ahead of time, but its best right after that chilling period so that the cookies still have a good amount of crunch to them. I probably wouldn’t make it an entire day ahead.

  1. I don’t know but I love foods that contains strawberry, honey, and chocolate. The only problem I have with recipes is I always find it difficult to go out and buy all the ingredients and then sit down and properly make a delicious perfect-for-me kind of food.

    Thanks Lil’ anyway for making this recipe and breaking it down into simple steps. Maybe I will have more time to do this.
