Salutations Steemit Friends!

To me, summer just wouldn't be complete without a quintessential summertime dessert like simply scrumptious Strawberry Shortcakes.

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 this classic shortcake recipe. I've added a lemony zest to the dough, and my sweet 'n tangy twist to the cream topping.

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

Strawberry Shortcake Biscuits with Greek Yogurt Cream Recipe 🍓🍰

1 tbsp baking powder
1 tsp fine salt
1/4 cup white sugar, plus more for topping*
1/4 cup heavy cream, plus more for brushing
1/2 cup whole milk
4 tbsp butter, melted, and lightly toasted to a golden-brown
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp almond extract

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 425 °F (220 °C).

  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 crème fraîche (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!

Next time, I might try cottage cheese with these... what d'ya think?

Thanks for commenting, upvoting and resteeming this post! I hope my post will inspire you to make and create or treat yourself to something sweet. Until next time...

Bon Appétit!

Thanks! And it's my pleasure to share it ; )

For the record, I've tried editing out the top emojis in markdown about a dozen times. In preview it's removed, but keeps updating the post with that mess.

Anyone have experience with this? If so, any tips to correct it? Thanks!

·

yes, I tried to help her with it too, really strange, either it doesn't like the emojis, or doesn't like the image first, not sure. definitely a glitch in there though!

The emojis were placed underneath the first paragraph, block quote thingy. It previewed that way, and once published it now looks like emojis exploded everywhere... : (

I tried to fix it...

Haha! I like it! ; )

You are so funny, that opening sentence cracked me up.
Indeed it looks very appetizing! Who doesn't like ice cream... vanilla ice, ice, baby!! ohhh yes, that rings a bell!!

·

Yes, vanilla ice cream is yummy... none here... but nonetheless, yummy!

·
·

Well when I look at the pictures it just looks like ice cream on top with strawberrys to me, and when I saw vanilla extract in the ingredients... that's what came into my mind, even tough is a shortcake with yogurt...
I know I am off, but couldn't help it :-)
