Make It

Tap or click steps to mark as complete

  • Crush 40 wafers; mix with 3 Tbsp. sugar and margarine. Press onto bottom of 13x9-inch pan.
  • Beat pudding mixes and milk in large bowl with whisk 2 min. Stir in COOL WHIP; spread half over crust. Cover with layers of remaining wafers and pudding mixture. Refrigerate 3 hours. Meanwhile, toss strawberries with remaining sugar. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  • Cut dessert into squares to serve; top with berry mixture.


Instead of refrigerating dessert for 3 hours, freeze it for just 1 hour or until firm before cutting into squares.

Special Extra

Garnish each square with a dollop of additional thawed COOL WHIP Whipped Topping and vanilla wafer.

    Those that are saying they cook the crust or don't like it soggy are trying to make a pie. The crust is supposed to get softer to taste more like shortcake - and don't change the milk to pudding ratio, there is less milk to begin with and the crust is meant to soak some up. I whipped some real whip cream with 2 tbsp. sugar and some vanilla, and then combined with the pudding. This is terrific!

    This is a great, easy recipe! I changed it up a bit to try to make it a little "better for you". The crust does not need the extra 3 Tbsp. sugar since the nilla wafers are sweet enough. I only put one pudding mix in, with 2 cups milk that the box suggests. Then I bought fresh picked strawberries that didnt need any extra sugar. It was a hit, and no one missed the extra sugar.
