If I had to pick a favorite dessert, albeit a difficult task, it would probably be strawberry shortcake. I always asked for it as my birthday cake as a little girl. There are many variations, some with pound cake, angel food cake, or a genoise. But my favorite and perhaps the most classic is to serve fresh picked berries and cream with flaky buttery biscuits. You can never go wrong with this combo of summery goodness.
Strawberry season is in full swing here in the northeast, so get out to your local farm to pick some while you can. There’s nothing like fresh local berries. You can swap any fruit for strawberries in this recipe, I’m sure we will be eating these all summer when the raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries ripen.
