The weather in SF has been stellar!! It looks, feels, and even smells (I know you know what I mean) like summer in SF right now. And you know what comes with summer – strawberry shortcake! One of my favorite desserts, it is so simple and delicious.
And you know me, if I can be made miniature I’m all about it. I made these for my friend’s birthday bbq in our backyard and they were gone in about 30 seconds – so I’m thinking they were good! I used this recipe and only added a little lemon juice and zest to the strawberry mixture.
When I was little and I would make biscuits with my dad, I loved this step – cutting in the butter. We had this fancy tool and it was my favorite step and still is, even with my inferior cutting tool – a fork. I love how the texture of the flour changes, it looks sandy and when you add the milk it turns into a shaggy pile of dough.
With something like buttery biscuit dough you don’t want to over mix/knead/roll it. It makes the biscuit tough and hard.
I don’t have a rolling pin so I used a glass to roll out the dough and I must have been channeling the french baker in me because I rolled the dough into the shape of France!
These make the perfect bite sized treat for summer!
