Each year during the early Spring we try to make it down to Florida to enjoy the already-warm weather that I oh-so-miss in Atlanta that time of year. We hit up the beach for a day, catch a few Spring Training games and Disney for a day (because, #momlife) but my classic favorites include the Strawberry Festival in Plant City and taking the kids to pick fresh strawberries from the field.
This season I decided to incorporate sprawling springs of fresh mint from my garden (since there is SO much) and the outcome was so beautiful I just had to share. I really hope you’ll give this one a try – trust me, you’ll never go back!
WILD STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE
Strawberry Topping :
4 cups Strawberries, washed + quartered
1-2 TBSP granulated sugar
Wash and quarter 4 cups of strawberries. Toss with 1 to 2 TBSP of granulated sugar and set aside.
Homemade Whipped Cream :
2 1/3 cups Bisquick
1/2 cup milk
3 TBSP granulated sugar
3 TBSP melted butter
Heat oven to 425 degrees. In medium bowl, mix Bisquick, milk, sugar + melted butter until soft dough forms. Grease cookie sheet and drop six equal sized balls of dough. Bake 10 minutes until golden brown. Remove from baking sheet and serve while warm.
To serve, place a single shortcake onto plate or bowl, top with two spoonfuls of strawberry topping and a dollop of fresh whipped cream. Garnish with mint, enjoy!
