How to Make Strawberry Shortcake Kabobs
Today we are layering sugar sprinkled biscuits, whipped topping, and strawberries to create a beautiful dessert that is simple, fun and tasty! Serve this Strawberry Shortcake as an appetizer or dessert for your next ladies’ brunch, luncheon, baby shower or bridal shower. It looks impressive, it tastes amazing, and it couldn’t be any easier to create! Here’s how –
YOU WILL NEED –
- 1 can of refrigerated biscuit dough*
- 1 egg white
- sugar for sprinkling
- 1 tablespoon water
- 20 large strawberries, sliced into 1/2 inch slices**
- 8-ounce tub of Cool Whip, defrosted
- 20 wooden skewers, cut to size
- 1-1/2 inch biscuit cutter
*One can of biscuits made 20 appetizers WITHOUT using the scraps. If you use the scraps you’ll get more, but you’ll need to adjust the other ingredients.
**Keep the strawberry slices stacked on themselves so you can use the same strawberries for one skewer. This way they fit together better.
On a lightly floured surface, roll each biscuit into a 5-inch circle, then cut out 7 – 1-1/2 inch circles from each flattened biscuit.
Place the small circles on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or sprayed with non stick cooking spray. Whisk together the egg white and water, then brush the mixture onto each biscuit and sprinkle with sugar.
Bake at 350 degrees for 12 to 14 minutes or until golden brown, then transfer to a cooling rack and let them cool completely before constructing the skewers.
- For a cleaner application fill a piping bag with the cool whip.
- Place the bottom biscuit round on the platter and then pierce from the top with a skewer. This will help the shortcake stand.
Start layering – biscuit, strawberry, cool whip. Repeat twice, ending with a third biscuit on top.
… and that’s it!
Aren’t these so pretty??

What a lovely idea! These are so adorable and unique… not to mention delicious. This seriously takes desserts to a new level and is hit for parties. Displays nicely too!
So easy, so cute and so delicious! We all just devoured them when we finished putting them together.
LOL, we did the same thing!
These are so darling! I made them for my sister’s baby shower and they were a huge hit!
SO cute! How far in advance do you think you could make these? Would the biscuit get soggy making them 3 hours in advance?
These are so cute and look fun to eat
Oh my these are adorable and look very yummy. They caught my eye over at the Linky Party Palooza. I’m definitely going to try these sometime.
This is such a great idea, these would be perfect for kids!
You’re right! A little less mess is always great plus it’s fun to eat.
These are absolutely adorable. I would have never thought to put them on a skewer.
I love taking food and making it in a fun way.
