Gooey, sweet, crunchy pecan pie blondies - sounds perfect right about now, doesn't it?

I beg you to make this dessert, whether you normally love strawberry shortcakes or not. The light and spongy cake carries just enough sweetness that pairs perfectly with the sweet coconut whipping cream and strawberry "syrup". YUM!

I enjoyed mine with a cup of milk - basically, either way, you won't be disappointed!
