Summer Calls for Shortcake

Is it possible to eat too much fruit?

I’d like to think no, at least I hope not because I’ve been eating it by the fork-full for the past few weeks… I’ve also been adding it to my water and I may have added it in a different kind of drink this weekend… so maybe I am having too much? But you know what I say to that? Fine. I’ll add some shortcake into the mix.

I’ve also gone with the Bisquick shortcake shortcut a few times. It’s pretty good, but it’s not a true shortcake, ya know? You can trust this analysis because last year I did a little taste test at the office and my version won fair and square (booya!) I highly suggest making these guys and bringing them to your 4th of July extravaganzas! You’re welcome in advance.

  1. Yum! Yum! Yum! I would like to invite you to link this up to the challenge this week on my blog. It is the Summer Desserts and Goodies challenge. We usually do craft challenges but I like to throw in a cooking challenge every now and again. Link up begins Wednesday night. Come on over!

  2. I hate when people make strawberry shortcake with angel food cake. Bleh! This on the other hand, looks amazing. I just sent it to my husband asking if we could make it.
