A Strawberry Weekend Pt. 3

As quickly as we tried to consume our strawberries, we still lost some to over-ripening and mold. So that Sunday we used what was left to make strawberry shortcakes. I love strawberry shortcake. As I mentioned in part one, it's pretty hard to go wrong with strawberries and whipped cream and throwing a little cake or sweet pastry in there is no exception.

We decided to make strawberry short cake with butter scones and homemade whipped cream (which is what our buddy-on-the-cookbook-page, Mark Bittman, suggested). They were absolutely delightful. We had extra scones since we made a full batch of those, but only had enough strawberries for a half batch of shortcakes. My waistline was thankful. You can probably see why:
