Labor Day weekend is around the corner. For your end of summer get-together, why not make this easy-peasy dessert? It’s got delicious berries that are right in season, plus ice cream! It’s very simple to make, so you don’t have to spend much time in the kitchen & you can focus on mingling with your guests.
The two ice creams that I am using for this recipe are from Tillamook. Did you know that Tillamook produces food other than cheese? I didn’t either until a few weeks ago. The Marionberry Pie is so yummy. It consists of vanilla ice cream, Oregon marionberries & flaky pie crust pieces. My daughter just LOVES to seek out the pie crust pieces & eat them. She loves the berries too! The other ice cream used in my shortcake recipe is Tillamook’s White Chocolate Raspberry Yum. It has white chocolate ice cream with a red raspberry swirl. Delish!
I used two types of berries in this dessert: raspberries & blueberries. The fruit came from FarmBox LA, which sources their produce from local, organic farmers & then delivers it right to your door. Such a great service & convenient too!
Here’s what the blueberry version of the Berrylicious Ice Cream Shortcake looks like. Can you see the marionberry swirl in the ice cream? I tried to photograph an ice cream scoop with the flaky pie crust showing but it proved too challenging for this shutterbug!
Berrylicious Ice Cream Shortcake
Tillamook Marionberry Pie ice cream
Tillamook White Chocolate Raspberry Yum ice cream
1 cup blueberries
1 cup raspberries
Premade shortcake dessert cups
Place one shortcake dessert cup in a bowl.
Scoop one cup of ice cream on top.
Garnish with berries.
Add whip cream.
Like I said, it is so simple to make that even my daughter helped me make it. I used the raspberries with the White Chocolate Raspberry Yum ice cream, but you can mix & match the flavors with your berries. My daughter had suggested that we use two scoops (one flavor each) & then garnish with both berries. Maybe we’ll do that next weekend! 🙂
What are your plans for the holiday weekend? Wishing you a great Labor Day weekend, from my family to yours!

Oh my gosh! These look so easy and good! I would probably sub the ice cream with a soy or coconut ice cream because I can’t do dairy but those Tilamook flavors – oh man!

This is an easy recipe & good idea on the substitute since you can’t have dairy. Yes, the Tilamook flavors rock! 😀
