Here is a patriotic 4th of July dessert. I made shortbread in the shape of stars and sprinkled them with sugar crystals for a little sparkle.
Are you a biscuit type strawberry shortcake person or a sponge cake strawberry shortcake person? Both have their merits but I think I lean towards the biscuit kind. Soaks up all that delicious strawberry juice better, me thinks.
The recipe I followed can be found here: Old-Fashioned Strawberry Shortcake and it couldn't have been easier. I did the whole thing in the food processor (even the step where I added the half & half). It is a soft, slightly sticky dough but very easy to work with.
Happy 4th of July everyone!
Edited to add:
Whipped this up for the 4th too. My first lattice crust! Turned out pretty good, if I do say so myself. Link to blueberry pie recipe.
