Rich, creamy, sweet, tart and decadent are all great ways to describe this dessert. They are simple to assemble since they use pre-packaged ingredients but look like you spent all day baking. They are perfect for a garden party or bridal shower and simple enough for everyday.

1 lb. strawberries, sliced thick

For the cookies:

1 cup shortening
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla
2 1/2 cups flour
1 (12 oz.) bag chocolate chips

Heat oven to 350°. Cream the shortening and sugars until creamy. Add the vanilla and eggs, one at a time, and mix well after each addition. In a separate bowl, whisk the dry ingredients together then add to the shortening mixture and mix well. Add the chocolate chips and mix again.

Place the dough on a baking sheet using a cookie scoop to ensure the cookies are all the same size. Bake for 9-11 minutes. The cookies will look undercooked. Remove from the pan immediately and allow to cool completely.

For the cheesecake frosting:

1 small box cheesecake pudding (you can use any flavor you like)
1 cup milk
~1 to 1 1/2 cup whipped topping

Mix the pudding and milk together until partially set. Fold in the whipped topping. Use more or less whipped topping depending on the flavor you want.
