God Morgen, world! And a good morning, it is! The flooding rains have finally stopped and I’m sharing a two-for-one recipe… a paleo-ified version of one of my favorite desserts – STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE! Which is simply a paleo biscuit with the addition of some sweetener & vanilla.
Herbs on strawberries may not sound amazing, but, trust me when I say they’re not overpowering at all. They put a fun twist on Grandma’s strawberry shortcakes. Give ‘em that little tszujing up that they desperately need. Oh, and they make you look a lil’ fancy if you serve ‘em to family & friends. Win! I make these biscuits with butter, but, you’re welcome to use ghee or coconut oil. (I’ve never tried them with coconut oil as I humbly believe butter & biscuits/baked goods simply belong together.)
Did I mention both the biscuit/shortcake and strawberry topping fall under the 5 ingredient rule?! AND you can have this entire dish baked and ready to serve in 15 minutes. Yes, FIFTEEN. It doesn’t get much better than that. Simple, simple, simple. I made these shortcakes with both a strawberry mint-thyme topping AND a peach-blueberry topping and dolloped some fresh coconut whipped cream on top. (I always have a plethora of fruit from mid June through July… I just can’t get enough on-sale summer berries and stone fruit.)
Since you are technically getting two recipes out of this, I might as well mention that if you omit the sweetener & vanilla, you have a paleo biscuit! Now, go! Feel free to do whatever you normally would with a biscuit! Sausage gravy?!? Biscuits for brunch?!? You could even add cheese & scallions & poppyseeds & herbs… Oh my, I think I just discovered an upcoming post!
In the meantime, I think you have your next easy, light, summer dessert recipe, don’t you?!
