|Here in Oxnard, we have strawberries year-round!|
This week's Baked Sunday Mornings challenge is for Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls. But, alas, pumpkin in not one of my favorite things. So, when I found these beautiful strawberries at the Famers' Market this morning, I decided to try one of Matt & Renato's recipes that I tore from the pages of the June edition of Better Homes and Gardens: Classic Shortcake.

Strawberry Shortcake has always been one of my favorite desserts - I used to beg mom for it instead of a birthday cake! These shortcakes are wonderful - they're light and delicious. They stand up to the strawberries and juice and the texture is heavenly. Don't let the little bit of shortening deter you - they still taste buttery. A lot of shortcakes are dense, but not these. In fact, they were so good that John & I split a second one! They would be equally delightful with peaches, or any other type of berry, as well.
