Bursting Sweet Berry Shortcakes are one of my favorite desserts (or even breakfast). Fresh, plump berries on a sweet shortcake and smothered with fluffy whipped cream make this a simple, yet amazing treat.
Spring has officially begun!
I love when it’s in full gear (April – May).
Each year, I like to go berry-picking and come home
with baskets full of great fruit.
I’m getting antsy for berry season to begin.
In the mean time I buy frozen and just sit tight.
What’s the best way to eat berries?
Berry shortcakes of course!
