Lemon Strawberry Shortcake

Ok ok, after dragging it out for a while, here is what I did with my Lemon Tea Scones and my Lemon Whipped Cream recipes.

Lemon Strawberry Shortcake.

Bake up your Lemon Tea scones that day.These weren’t going to be a separate recipe, but they are in fact the shortcake component of my lemon Strawberry Shortcake. Real shortcake is a scone or biscuit, not a cake. So of course, why would I make a cake instead of my favorite food of all? So off I went to create a scone/biscuit for my shortcake. And they are so good by themselves, they had to be a separate recipe.


Slice up a bunch of fresh strawberries.

Make your Lemon Whipped Cream.

If you have company, set it out like this:

I didn’t realize until I put the items together for a picture what a wonderful build-it-yourself dessert this is and works so easily for a large amount of people, perfect for a summer get-together!

Everyone can take a sliced scone, layer on the whipped cream and strawberries and chose to eat it with or without a top.

It was amazingly light and a perfect summertime dessert!

    Garibaldis are the favourite tea biscuit of DCI Gene Hunt in the BBC shows Life on Mars and Ashes to Ashes. They are also mentioned briefly in the prologue of Meera Syal’s debut novel Anita and Me. Naomi Campbell, a character in British teen drama Skins, is quite fond of them. Inspector Japp offered one to Poirot in the episode in which Poirot’s dentist was murdered. In the Doctor Who audio episode The Stuff of Nightmares, the fourth Doctor has a soggy Garibaldi. In Dinnerladies, Mr. Michael, the boss of HWD Components, is quite fond of them.
