Strawberry shortcakes have been one of my favorites for over years. Every year when the strawberry season hit, we always go to farmers' market and get lots of fresh and sweet strawberries, then strawberry shortcakes are always one of the recipes we make. The shortcakes are super easy to make, they are buttery and flaky, which is delicious with sweet whipped cream and fresh-juicy strawberries. Haven't heard there is someone who doesn't like it. An absolute keeper!
