It seems almost cruel to make you look at all these images! There you were, going about your day, not even thinking about strawberry shortcake–and now look what I have done. Suddenly you found it impossible to think about anything else!
That is just what this recipe for homemade strawberry shortcake does to you. This is the best strawberry shortcake I have ever had. No foolin’.
After purchasing a bucket of fresh strawberries from our local farmer’s market, I had to do something! Oh, do I have strawberry recipes coming up for you. Having never tackled making any strawberry shortcake recipe, I had a feeling it would be pretty simple.
I have made my favorite recipe for biscuits countless times by now so I assumed it wouldn’t be much more difficult than that. I was right! I can’t believe that such a delicious dessert could be baked, whipped, and assembled in such a short amount of time–and with such ease! This strawberry shortcake recipe is definitely my new “company’s coming” favorite, you will be glad to know.
You might be tempted to buy already made whipped cream. Don’t do it! It is so simple and so easy to make your own, I highly suggest you try it. The only thing you need to remember is this: chill the bowl and beaters before you begin! That is it. Okay, maybe that isn’t only it. You need a little patience. It might take slightly longer than you would think before it comes together and starts to resemble whipped cream. The addition of sour cream in this whipped cream recipe prevents it from being too sweet, but gives it a little extra something that makes such a fabulous complement to the sweet filling and slightly sweetened shortcake. It is, in a word, “perfect.” This recipe hails from Food.com. It is a keeper!
