Did you know that June 14th is National Strawberry Shortcake Day? Well, it is!
National Strawberry Shortcake Day honors a dessert that’s great for summer! It’s light, easy to make, and makes use of the delicious seasonal berries.
Imagine sweet, juicy red strawberries, piled high on shortcakes-with the crumbly texture of a biscuit in every bite. And let’s not forget the topping of fresh whipped cream! Are you ready to celebrate National Strawberry Shortcake Day?
Slice strawberries, add a little sugar, place on top of individual shortcakes, and add whipped cream! This dessert is bound to be loved by all! I was just talking to my fiance about strawberry shortcake the other night and here I find out that there’s a perfect reason to make it coming up in June. (like I needed an excuse!)
This multi-layered desert has been around since about 1850 and usually a sure sign that warmer weather is on the way. It’s the perfect blend of buttery and creamy and sweet, and the different textures from each element make for a very satisfying treat.
I can’t wait to celebrate!!
