Strawberry Shortcake....

My family just cracks up when I am taking photos of food.....
But, I knew I had to share this recipe on the blog after 
 everyone loved this shortcake I 
made to compliment our yummy farmer's market strawberries.
I think the orange zest adds a little extra 'something' to 
make these simple shortcakes really special!

Whole Foods Market Simple Shortcakes

1 cup Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
3 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon sugar, divided
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon orange zest
1/2 teaspoon find sea salt
1 1/2 cups heavy cream divided
3/4 pound strawberries, hulled and chopped

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  In a large bowl, whisk together flour, 3 tablespoons
sugar, baking powder, zest and salt.  Stir in 3/4 cup cream with a fork to make a 
rough dough.  Drop onto a parchment lined baking sheet to make four biscuits.
Brush lightly with cream and bake until deep golden brown, about 25 minutes.

Whisk remaining cream and sugar in a large bowl until soft peaks form. 
{or you can buy Redi-Whip, like I did}

I mixed the shortcakes up and popped them in the oven right before we
sat down to dinner.  They were still warm when we enjoyed them for dessert!

Anyone else getting online to get Justin Bieber tickets today?  I have
a certain 10 year old in my home that has the Bieber Fever - bad!  
Wish me luck on getting tickets!  They go on sale at 10:00 am!
