Strawberry Shortcakes


One of my friends who lives in Berkeley decided to come home for a surprise visit this weekend. In turn, we assembled a last-minute dinner party to celebrate her return. Naturally, I wanted to make something for dessert. But, I was completely indecisive and wanted to make something that wouldn’t take too much time or effort. It wasn’t until I woke up to an intensive bout of sunshine Saturday morning that I felt compelled to make a spring-inspired dessert (fingers crossed that the sunshine continues!). So, while perusing through possible spring desserts, I finally settled upon Strawberry Shortcakes.

Step 1: Create Dough with Butter,
Sugar, Salt, and Milk


Step 2: Drop Dough Onto Greased Pan;
Spread Whipping Cream and Sugar On Top


Step 3: Combine Strawberries, Fresh
Lemon Juice, and Sugar (Let Sit for 1.5 Hours)


Step 4: Bake Dough and Slice Each In Half


Step 5: Use a Mixer to Create Whipped
Cream With Heavy Whipping Cream and Sugar


Step 6: Assemble Whipped Cream,
Cakes, and Strawberries Together


This recipe was definitely quick, easy, and a nice change from the usual dessert rotation. Although it is a rich dessert, I want to experiment with making miniature Strawberry Shortcakes for next time.

All in all, the dinner party was so much fun. I love catching up with friends over a nice dinner, dessert, and wine.

Cheers!
