strawberry shortcake question
Mon, 03/27/06 1:41 PM
For the last one hundred years or so I have been making the glorious Strawberry Shortcake by just cutting up ripe berries, adding some sugar, letting them sit a spell then serving them on a buttermilk biscuit with globs of homemade whipped cream. But----recently I came across a recipe that adds orange juice and a teaspoon of orange marmalade to the berrys and cooks them all together for a few minutes. After they cool they have a glaze and taste great.
Strawberry's grown right here in Tampa are 99 cents right now so I made the desert over the weekend using the new recipe ---it was
F-A-N-T-A-S-T-I-C. Got rave reviews from all but one fair Lady who said the berries should be served on sponge cake not biscuits.
Who does what to whom ????? Which is correct ????? I prefer my biscuits---am I wrong ????
