Martha Monday: Strawberry Shortcake
So, thanks to Pru for picking the perfect dessert as strawberry season is upon us here in Maryland. I have a freezer full of jam. I've made popsicles, pie, smoothies, and strawberry lemonade but I hadn't made shortcake.
Strawberry Shortcake is really easy for those of you who approach baking with fear and trepidation. And this recipe does most of the work in a food processor so it really can't get any easier. I made my shortcakes a bit patriotic by using the red, white, and blue sugar crystals my son had so lovingly selected at the store. The shortcakes are like a really tender, slightly sweet biscuit. Mound on the sweetened strawberries and a bit of vanilla whipped cream and you are ready to take on the world.
Or perhaps play the piano at your first recital.
Yup, that's my seven-year-old playing at his first recital. He did fabulously! Nary a mistake. Must've been the shortcake.
