Strawberry Shortcake ~ Martha Mondays

This week was Pru's turn to pick what we all made for Martha Mondays , Pru writes Perfecting Pru and she chose Strawberry Shortcakes. Florida strawberries peak in March, and are about over by the end of April...mmm love the fresh local strawberries, but I was able to pick up some California strawberries, that worked for this recipe.

I am very picky about my shortcake, I don't like it too sweet, or too spongy, but these are just right. They smelled so good while baking with all that butter. For a Martha Stewart recipe it was pretty simple and you only used the food processor and the bowl to hold the strawberries...uh that's unusual for her, but nice.

The only problem I had was I didn't have any whipped cream...and I didn't want to run back to the store to get any...so I had to use sweetened condescend milk (which I usually have in the pantry). Oops I put too much on top you can't see the shortcake.




There I'll put one next to it so you can see it...




Well I must say...this was good, the shortcake reminds me of the ones my dad makes, so they are good to me. The sweetened condensed milk was the light version so it was just right and very tasty. Good choice Pru! My turn to pick next weeks, we a making granita!! Come along and join us, just let Brette know and we'll see you next week!
