Strawberry season rocks, and I’m a southerner now

we’ve reached the point in strawberry season when the supermarkets start GIVING away the strawberries. Its a happy time. I really only buy strawberries when they are in season here in Florida because they’re local–grown in Plant City which is only about 45 minutes away.

they had a lady at the supermarket making strawberry shortcake samples to give away in those lame shortcake shells. I decided I could do much better.

 So I called my only truly southern friend, Rachel. She’s from Dothan, Alabama. And I asked her if she had a tried-and-true biscuit recipe. She didn’t, but looked in her ‘southern’ cookbook and gave me one.

I worked up the courage to try it today–it was my test batch. and it worked. Really well. They’re flaky and tender, just like a biscuit should be.

tomorrow night we’re having friends over and dessert will be strawberry shortcake on biscuits. I CAN’T wait!

  1. You can’t talk about it and not share the recipe! We are HUGE strawberry lovers in this family as well…well any berry goes over VERY well here to be honest.
