Mmmmm... shortcakes! You just can't go wrong with a shortcake. I mean, it's pretty obvious that I love them considering they have their own label on my blog. Okay, so there are only 4 in that category, but they are so fantastic they deserve to have their own place!
While I do have a recipe that I usually use, that doesn't stop me from trying a new one. You never know when you will find something fantastic! Dorie's shortcake doesn't fail. I mean, anything with butter has to be good, right? I loved how it was slightly sweetened but not overly so. I let the berries sit in a little sugar and very, very lightly sweetened the whipped cream. I loved how everything went so well together without being too sugary.
(On a side note, don't judge my whipped cream. :) I turned away for a second to help one of the kids and next thing I know it was overwhipped. Still delicious, but not as smooth as I like for it to be!)
Writing this post is making me want more shortcakes.... Yum, yum, yum!
