Finally, a nice weekend in Seattle. Sunny, 70 degrees, head to the market, fresh strawberries so I can make one of my favorite desserts. Strawberry Shortcake. I like to have my strawberries over buttermilk biscuits, I like fresh whipped cream, and I especially like adding Balsamic Vinegar to the "sugaring" of the strawberries.
A simple delicious dessert.
Ingredients and Method:
20 medium size fresh strawberries
1/2 cup white sugar
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
Wash strawberries and remove caps and pith with the end of a small spoon. Quarter strawberries and place in a bowl. Add sugar and balsamic, cover and refrigerate for at least two hours. Overnight is better.
Prepare buttermilk biscuits, your own recipe or try Ron's Buttermilk Biscuits from this blog.
Cut in half, spread liberally with strawberry mixture and juices. Top with whipped cream or Cool Whip.
