Recipe Recap: Classic Strawberry Shortcake

Along with fun-filled vacations, late evening walks at sunset and lazy days lounging with a good book in hand, summertime for me means feasting upon the many delicious light foods the season is known for, from salads to grilled vegetables to fresh-fruit desserts.

One such dessert, which my ever-talented husband treated me to a couple weeks ago, is Williams-Sonoma’s classic strawberry shortcake, complete with homemade whipped cream and flaky biscuit-like bread.


It was the first time I’d ever had this particular version of strawberry shortcake before, but now that I’ve tried it, it’s quickly topped my list of summertime favorites. Check out the recipe on the Williams-Sonoma website, and give it a try for the perfect end-of-summer treat!

What's your favorite summertime dessert?

  2. Yum, that sounds delish! I've never tried shortcake with a flaky texture like that.

    And my current favorite summer dessert is Brûléed Apricots (from Health-Bent).

  5. This looks divine - Stephen did a great job! I shamefully admit that I used to love the KFC strawberry shortcake (I think it was more cakey though). Any cold bowl of cut summer fruit is great!
