The World of Strawberry Shortcake

Strawberry Shortcake 2

Strawberry shortcake is a sure sign that summer is coming. We had our first of the season the other day at my in-laws’ house, and now I’m completely hooked. Hubby came home with 2 big pints of beautiful strawberries the other day, and I knew I had to request his famous strawberry shortcake.

He doesn’t like to flaunt it like I do (ha ha), but he is an amazing baker. This dish has wowed my parents, and several of our friends. And I still never knew the true recipe until tonight!! His family is definitely one for *secret recipes* – that I intend to chip away at over the years to come!

The shortcake is buttery and moist with a crispy sugared top. Delicate and tender, it absolutely melts in your mouth. Throw away your other recipes. This is The One!
