Enjoy the cuteness of the day with this fun idea. šŸ˜

I thought this dessert from Land O’ Lakes would be nice as a Mother’s Day or springtime dessert. The layers of creamy filling and fresh strawberries are stacked with mint butter cookies. The mint looks really pretty, but I would probably prefer to leave it out and just have vanilla cookies.

Strawberry Cream Cookie Stacks

3/4 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup Land O LakesĀ® Butter, softened
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 Land O LakesĀ® All-Natural Egg
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh mint

1/2 cup whipping cream
1 (3.3-ounce) package white chocolate instant pudding and pie filling mix
1 1/4 cups milk
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh mint
1 (16-ounce) package fresh strawberries, thinly sliced
Mint leaves, if desired

Combine powdered sugar, butter and vanilla in large bowl; beat at medium speed until mixed. Add egg; continue beating until creamy. Reduce speed to low; add flour, baking powder and salt. Beat until well mixed. Stir in 1 tablespoon chopped mint.

Divide dough in half. Shape each half into a ball; flatten slightly. Wrap each in plastic food wrap; refrigerate until firm (at least 1 hour).

Heat oven to 350Ā°F. Roll out dough, one-half at a time, on lightly floured surface, (keeping remaining dough refrigerated), to 1/8-inch thickness. Cut out 16 cookies with floured 3-inch scalloped or round cookie cutter. Place 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Remove to wire cooling rack; cool completely.

Pour whipping cream into medium bowl; beat at high speed until soft peaks form. Combine pudding mix and milk in small bowl; beat with wire whisk until smooth. Slowly add pudding to whipped cream; beat at medium speed until thick and creamy. Gently stir in 1 tablespoon chopped mint.

Place 8 cookies, bottom-side up, onto individual serving plates. Spread each with scant 1/4 cup filling. Top each with 2 tablespoons strawberries and remaining cookies, bottom-side down. Garnish with mint leaves, if desired.
