I finally made it ON TIME! Its a Tuesday miracle. Excuse the blurry photo and the lack of berries. Just relish in the fact that I completed and blogged about my tender shortcakes in time. If you want the truth of the matter. We didn’t even eat them with berries, or cream. Liam and I woofed them down plain for breakfast. They are simply delightful straight up. They need no funny business. Had there been any lemon curd in the fridge, maybe a smidge of that, but thats all. I mean it. They need nothing. We loved them and I plan to make them again, tomorrow, for breakfast. If thats not a rave review, I don’t know what is.
I meant to halve this recipe. And I did, until the heavy cream. I added all the heavy cream. Nice job Laurie. Nice job. I scrambled to make the whole recipe at that point. It seemed to work out okay despite my goofballness. I brushed the tops with heavy cream and sprinkled with coarse sugar before baking. They were a hit!
One more thing, we are walking in the Fun Run/Walk for Epilepsy in Pittsburgh, on June 19th, in support of our son Colby. We are asking that folks donate to the Epilepsy Foundation in Colby’s name. In return, I am running a raffle for all those that donate. Winner will receive 2 autographed cookbooks by Dorie Greenspan. I think thats a damn good deal. A good cause and free cookbooks!
