Strawberry Shortcake with White Chocolate Whipped Cream

Strawberry Shortcake with White Chocolate Whipped Cream

For those of you who aren’t familiar with our monthly Chocolate Party, hosted by my dear friend, Roxana, it’s a blogger event where we all have a month to pair a selected ingredient with chocolate. This month’s Chocolate Party ingredient is buttermilk...which provides tenderness to so many baked goods…like in my favorite biscuits. I decided to make some sweet, flaky, buttermilk shortcakes with Grand Marnier spiked strawberries for our Easter dessert.  And instead of spoonfuls of ordinary whipped cream, dollops of white chocolate mousse would contribute a heavenly, indulgent topping. This Strawberry Shortcake with White Chocolate Whipped Cream was exquisite.

  • 2½ cups flour plus more for rolling dough
