Hot Eats and Cool Reads: Lemony Strawberry Shortcake Recipe

Lemony Strawberry Shortcake Recipe

This Lemony Strawberry Shortcake is something special! The addition of lemon curd to the homemade whipped cream gives it such a summery flavor and we all know strawberries and lemon go hand in hand. This dessert was so simple to make using store bought ingredients, but if you have the extra time, go ahead and make it from scratch. Either way, it's a perfect dessert for that special someone, picnics or a snack for the kiddos!

Lemony Strawberry Shortcake
4 servings

What you need:
1 cup whipping cream
1 1/2 tablespoons powdered sugar
6 tablespoons lemon curd

4 shortcake biscuits, quartered
strawberries, quartered
lemon zest, optional

In a chilled bowl, beat the whipping cream with an electric mixer until thickened. Add the powdered sugar and lemon curd and beat until combined. 

Layer shortcake biscuits, strawberries and whipped cream in four mini trifle bowls. Sprinkle lemon zest over the top. Serve immediately. 

I was provided coupons from Driscoll's Berries and The Daily Meal for this post.
