Inspired by my shortcake recipe and without the time to make shortcakes, we’ve been eating the strawberries in Cointreau straight up. I also had to try the reddi-whip on the fourth of July to bring to a pool party–not making homemade whip cream on site with 2 bambinos in tow and I didn’t think it would hold up in the heat. I ended up forgetting the shortcakes with all the gear we had. They were star-shaped too! And so this desert was born out of necessity.
Last night we got some plain mini-scones from Central Market and they make an excellent stand-in for the shortcakes. Also splurged on Hagen daas vanilla ice cream–man is it sweet! Think we’ll stick to the whipped cream.
