Strawberry Shortcakes

Strawberry Shortcakes

Strawberry Shortcake – a delicious dessert with sweet and juicy strawberries, homemade whipped cream in between a yummy biscuit.

I know it’s not strawberry season, but on our last trip to Costco I bought these huge gorgeous strawberries and I just had to make something with them. First thing that popped in my head was strawberry shortcakes with lightly sweetened cream biscuits, a vanilla whipped cream and of course delicious strawberries sprinkled with sugar and some lemon zest and juice. I hope I’ve sold you on them, because they sure were great. Almost felt like spring was here.
