Strawberry Season

First you pick….

Then you smoosh…

Then you eat!

My recipe-

Buy or make biscuits.  I bought these particular ones at the Jordan’s Farm Stand in Cape Elizabeth, but if I make them I use buttermilk, I think that really makes the difference.  I gave the berries a simple crush with just two tablespoons of sugar (this varies year to year), and then had my son whip the cream (so easy for kids to do!).  I recommend adding some more sugar or a dash of vanilla to the cream.  Then assemble: put some butter on the heated biscuits, layer the strawberry and cream in a see-through glass,  and then my secret ingredient, add coconut to the top.  It gives that added layer of texture, that in my opinion, really takes the cream to a new level.

    Write a cookbook. I’m drooling. PS I had a little lemon zest to the shortcake.

  2. I think you might be right about the lemon zest… I always do that with my blueberry dishes. I’d love to write a cookbook, that would be amazing.

    You should host some sort of lunch party (clean out the refridgerator extravanganza) for your blog readers. I would definately be there!!!
