Strawberry Shortcake Biscuits with Greek Yogurt Cream ๐Ÿ“๐Ÿฐ (PHOTOS + RECIPE)

2 months ago

Greetings Friends! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Typically, I think of Strawberry Shortcakes ๐Ÿ“๐Ÿฐ as a quintessential summertime dessert, however, I find them simply scrumptious throughout the year.

Ahhh, Strawberry Shortcakes, how berry nice to meet you! Do ya taste as sweet as ya look? Oh, goody gumdrops, I bet ya do! Lemme take a lil' nibble and find out... (nom nom nom)......

This simple combination of macerated strawberries and European shortbread biscuits topped with whipped cream has become synonymous with a true taste of Americana.

Today, I'll share with you my adaptation of a classic shortcake recipe. I've added a lemony zest to the dough ๐Ÿ‹, and my sweet 'n tangy twist to the cream topping.

I hope you won't be able to resist this refreshingly sweet treat! ๐Ÿฅฐ

Directions


For the Strawberries:

  1. In a large mixing bowl, sprinkle sliced strawberries with sugar and 1 tbsp of fresh lemon juice. Stir until sugar begins to dissolve.

  2. Next, cover and refrigerate the strawberry mix for at least an hour (or until the juice of the berries is extracted).

That was easy-peasy! Next, let's make and bake our shortcakes...

For the Shortcake Biscuits:


  1. Preheat the oven to 425ยฐF (220ยฐC).

  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  3. In small saucepan, melt butter over medium. Stir continually, allowing the foam to dissipate, just until the butter begins to brown (2-3 minutes). Then remove from heat.

  4. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, 1/3 cup white sugar and salt.

  5. Add milk, 1/4 cup cream, toasted butter, extracts and lemon zest. Mix just until ingredients come together.

  6. Transfer dough to a lightly floured surface and press or roll dough into a rectangle about 1" thick. Score and cut in half lengthwise, then cut each half into 3 portions. Next, place shortcake portions on prepared baking sheet. Brush the tops with cream and sprinkle with Turbinado sugar.

  7. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown - 15 to 20 minutes. Once baked, allow biscuits to cool, then split each biscuit in half.

That was a cakewalk! We just need the yogurt cream topping...


Now, having made homemade strawberry shortcakes, I think it's fair to say it would be an egregious mistake to top them with whipped cream from a can (however tempting)!

I had an awful lot of plain Greek yogurt in the fridge to experiment with, along with the homemade heavy cream substitute I made for the biscuits. I should disclose that my heavy cream substitution may have resulted in something closer to buttermilk.

After experimenting with those ingredients (with a few added drops of vanilla extract), the result was something like a thinner, vanilla Greek yogurt crรจme fraรฎche (or rather, that's what I'm calling it).

I was starving and too impatient to tweak the topping ... ssoooo, I decided it was ready to serve as is. You know what?! To me, it was divine! The topping had a sweet 'n tangy taste, and it's thinner consistency soaked into the biscuits well too (without making 'em mushy).

This made for a lovely Sunday evening dessert for four with room for a second helping. I'm happy to report that all four bowls were licked clean. I think it's safe to say that they were a big hit!

thank you for sharing ...

This looks so good! Strawberries, cream, biscuits... I really need to try this at home.

ยท

I love the little green color leave. It's so visually appealing. And red of straberries contrast so well with white cream. Oh, and don't even start me on the wonderful imagined taste.

Is it possible to be able to resist such delicious looking meal. You must be a specialist.

ยท

I'd love to be a delicious specialist when I grow up! With a fancy title like "Director of Deliciousness"... ๐Ÿ˜‚

Your food porn is sending my eys into an eyegasm and my stomach is turning with hunger! Beautiful shots and recipe! My sister in law makes desserts and he partner enforced it would be a 'Cardianl Sin' to usd spray cream! They had a certain technique to whip the cream just right and it was totally different when not done properly, whem done right it is soooooooo goooood! Thank you for sharing and I look forward to your next installment!

ยท

Yes, homemade whipped cream can be amazingly delicious... and frothy and swirly ... I like to add a touch of gelatin so it doesn't go flat.

ยท

Well, I can't say I haven't heard that before... ๐Ÿค”
