Strawberry Shortcakes are one of my all-time favorite desserts. I love shortbread and the not too sweet crumbly texture. I especially like them with macerated strawberries, whipped cream, and delicious strawberry syrup.
Most shortcake is too dry for my liking. However, I have discovered a secret ingredient that adds tons of moisture to the shortbread-cream cheese. It’s definitely not a classic shortbread ingredient, but it definitely makes a huge difference in the density and deliciousness of the shortbread.
