This will be a short and sweet write-up for this week's Tuesdays With Dorie recipe for Tender Shortcakes. Things have been busy and hectic around here, as the hubs and I are counting down to our upcoming vacation in Italy!
I'm a raving fan of shortcakes, as the slightly sweet biscuit serves as a delicious platform for all of delicious fruit in season. For a change of pace from my favorite Strawberry Shortcakes, I selected a combination of peaches and raspberries for the fruit filling in this version.
I loved the simplicity in making these freeform shortcakes. True to the title of the recipe, these slightly sweet biscuits have a wonderfully tender interior with a slightly crumbly exterior. I scaled down my batch to 1/3 of the original recipe, which yielded four decent sized shortcakes.
Thanks to Cathy of The Tortefeasor for this fantastic summer pick. Make sure to visit Cathy's blog for the recipe, and treat your family to this wonderful summertime dessert.
