After I tasted this dessert at a party, a friend shared the recipe. It originally called for pound cake...and I decided to lighten it up by substituting angel food. The result was this delicious light torte.

"This elegant dessert is as beautiful as it is delicious," says Brenda Bodnar from Euclid, Ohio. "Not only is it ultra-easy to prepare, but it's a make-ahead recipe, so there's no last-minute fussing when company is coming."
"I CAN still taste the sweet juicy berries piled over warm biscuits and topped with a huge dollop of fresh whipped cream. My father added ever more indulgence to this strawberry dessert by first buttering his biscuits."
Marscarpone cheese, fresh strawberries and a hint of lemon flavor this mouthwatering and impressive-looking dessert from Carrie Vazzano in Rolling Meadows, Illinois. An added bonus…the waxed-paper lined pan makes for speedy cleanup! CARRIE’S TIP. For health-conscious cooks or those counting calories, skimmed milk and reduced-fat cheese make easy, slimming substitutions.—Carrie Vazzano, Rolling Meadows, Illinois
The oldest of seven children, I did a lot of cooking and baking while I was growing up. Desserts like this refreshing rolled shortcake are my favorite. The nutty cake, creamy filling and fresh strawberries make pretty swirled slices.
