I went to my blog idol, Annie's Eats, and was happy to see that she had a recipe for berry shortcakes. She likes to add blueberries to make it more patriotic for the 4th of July, but Mom, being a purist, asked for just strawberries. The recipe calls for the cakes, a berry sauce, and whipped cream, so I made all three. The biscuits were pretty easy actually; you mix the ingredients up in a bowl with a fork, make a log out of the dough, and cut it into 6 shortcakes. Then the strawberries get chopped, a fourth of them get mashed with a fork, and confectionary sugar is added for just a bit more sweetness. I also made whipped cream, again with theconfectionary sugar, which I thought was interesting. We've always just used regular sugar here. I loved this recipe, and so did Mom. I will say that if (when) I make it again, I will double or even triple the whipped cream recipe. It only calls for 1/2 cup of heavy cream, and that is supposed to make enough for 6 shortcakes!? We only ate 3 cakes and ran out of cream. It's definitely a keeper recipe, though, and perfect to eat on a hot, steamy June night.
