We have a lot of strawberries left over from our strawberry picking trip yesterday, so I decided to whip up a quick and easy strawberry shortcake for dessert.
Oh, my goodness…
I have to say, there’s just about nothing better than fresh strawberries, sliced up, that have been soaking in sugar for a few hours. Add this super fast, easy shortcake recipe and a bit of whipped cream and you’ll be in total strawberry dessert heaven with this strawberry shortcake, I promise!
My family was begging for seconds.
