Strawberry Short"cups"

Tuesday night one of my friends mentioned strawberry shortcake...and I haven't been able to get it out of my head since.  It's by far one of my favorite desserts - so light and refreshing.  So, when I stopped by walmart to pick up a few things last night and walked by the huge display of strawberries...I just couldn't pass 'em up!  I always like to mix things up a bit though, so instead of a making a large cake or even small biscuit size portions, I decided to make individual cakes with a nice little "well" so that the strawberries had a perfect resting spot and all the juices could soak in.  Of course, I had to make some real whipping cream, because that's just how strawberry shortcake is done.  This would be a great summer dessert - especially if you made a cute little "topper" for each portion to serve to your guests...maybe with a little scripture or fun saying...or even just a cute strawberry patch illustration!  The possibilities are endless!


  1. I'm so doing this. I love strawberry shortcake! One of my favorite desserts. Did you use a traditional biscuit recipe and just shape it into a muffin tin? I have an easy recipe from Cheryl (Robert & Jenny's mom) that is yummy.

  2. Can I have the recipe please? :) I was planning on making strawberry shortcake this month and this is too cute!

  3. Thanks guys! Natalie - no, I use a shortcake's a slightly different consistency and sweeter too, but yes, I used a muffin tin. Madeline - just posted the recipe on the blog! Let me know if either one of you end up making them...and how you like it!!
