Its strawberry season here in Central Florida. The Strawberry Festival in Plant City is a huge event to go to. We haven’t been yet, but plan to next year.
I love making recipes with fresh veggies and fruits from our area when they are in season. So, the best thing to make with strawberries is Strawberry Shortcakes.
What I love to do is make the shortcake recipe, chop up the biscuits into small squares and build the most perfect dessert. So light and yummy. This is really easy to make even though its made from scratch. An elegant dessert or for the neighborhood BBQ. Each serving can be as small or as large as you like.
The batter for the shortcakes or sweet biscuits doesn’t take that long and if you have a food processor the work is done for you. If you don’t have a food processor, a pastry cutter will work great also. If you don’t have either, use the best utensils you have. Your fingers. Just grind the butter and flour between your fingers until it looks like course sand.
I have made this recipe with sugar substitutes before and it tastes great. Just remember to use a sugar substitute you can bake with in the biscuits. I also use light whipped cream and hubby never notices.
