Does it get any better than a build your own strawberry shortcake bar?
Flaky, butttery biscuits, the juiciest, ripest red strawberries, light and fluffy whipped cream, blueberries bursting with fresh flavor, just a little bit of chocolate and some big glass jars is all it takes to make this shortcake bar a reality.
I took this shortcake bar to a friends house this week (Did I mention that it's portable too?) and it was a big hit. It was fun to watch everyone at the party customize their shortcake dessert.
Strawberry Shortcake Biscuits
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup cake flour
1 teaspoon granulated sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
½ cup unsalted butter, chilled, cut into small pieces
¾ cup buttermilk
Use a 2 inch circle cutter to form biscuits.
Place biscuits on a silpat lined baking sheet. Bake 10 minutes at 400.
Place cooled biscuits in a jar or a basket.
Slice each biscuit in half and assemble shortcakes.
OR _ set up a build your own strawberry shortcake bar. I had a jar of biscuits, a bowl of strawberries, a bowl of blueberries, a bowl of whipped cream and some mini chocolate chips.
I'm pretty sure these were as much fun to create as they were to eat. Everyone's shortcake came out differently but they were all beautiful. How can you go wrong with fresh fruit and homemade whipped cream?
The best part about this shortcake bar is that you can get SUPER creative and add all kinds of other ingredients too. Peaches, blackberries, granola, nuts - the sky's the limit. Be creative and send me a picture of YOUR shortcake bar.
