I love berries! yum! Blueberries, raspberries, blackberries ... honest and for truly ~ yum! Beautiful to look at, wonderful to serve up fresh, to pie up for your family. And don't they look beautiful in the Limoges porcelain berry bowl?! xo double yum!
And today I'm including the very best shortcake recipe I've run across in quite some time for you to try. This one comes courtesy of the good folk at Real Simple.com.
Their recipes are wonderfully easy and I've yet to try something they've suggested that I haven't loved. They will drop a recipe every morning into your email box, if you ask nicely. It's a wonderful resource for you!
And this wonderful fresh summer recipe is a keeper ~ and it really is 'real simple'!
2 pounds berries (such as raspberries, blueberries, or sliced strawberries)
1/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 cup heavy cream
8 biscuits, store-bought or made from a mix
1. In a large bowl, toss the berries and 1/3 cup of the sugar. Let sit for at least 15 minutes (and up to 4 hours, refrigerated).
2. In a medium bowl, beat the cream and the remaining 2 tablespoons of sugar until soft peaks form.
3. Split the biscuits in half. Spoon the berries and whipped cream on the bottom halves and sandwich with the tops.
