Firecracker Shortcake is the perfect dessert for 4th of July. It is a light, refreshing and tasty dish. You can serve this dessert with or without coolwhip. My family and friends prefer when I make Homemade Whipped Cream and put it on top. This is a great dish that you can prepare ahead of time and it travels well for parties and gatherings.
