I love Strawberry Shortcakes! There’s a Strawberry Festival in Toledo every year that I used to love to go to. I would go and just buy Strawberry Shortcakes! They have a biscuit-like cake and are topped with a whole heap of strawberries and of course a generous portion of whipping cream. Well I’m thousands of miles away from the festival now, but that doesn’t mean I can’t still enjoy them right? I’ve made Strawberry Shortcakes plenty of times- usually cutting the butter into the flour. Well that’s a pain in the kisser so I decided to simplify the process with this recipe for EASY Strawberry Shortcakes! And when I say easy I mean EASY!

They’re so easy because you make the shortcake in the food processor. Pulse the butter and dry ingredients, slowly pour in the buttermilk to form a ball then add an egg, pulsing a few times to incorporate it all together. Drop the dough into 12 shortcakes and then bake them for 15-18 minutes…. and to be honest it’s not a big deal if you over bake them (just don’t burn them). In the end you’re going to spoon over the strawberries which will soften the shortcake to the perfect consistency.

Now if you have to serve them right away then do that. But if you can be patient and wait a good 30 minutes or so, you’ll have a shortcake that’s soaked in strawberry liquid. The result? Heaven!

These look so adorable. I love the pastry mixture, and they are completely adaptable. I'm guessing that blueberries or raspberries would work as a great topping as well. Yummy!

I'm not sure if I've ever had a strawberry shortcake. I grew up with angel food cake topped with strawberries and whipped cream and this reminds me of that! Only so easy to make, which is awesome!

My Mom used to make something pretty similar to this growing up. It was always one of my favorites. Strawberries are just great so many ways but making this in the food processor is a great idea!
