Ingredients

  • 1 cup of fresh, ripe strawberries
  • 1/2 cup of granulated sugar
  • 1 cup of heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 8 shortcake cups
  • Fresh mint leaves for garnish

Instructions

  1. Start by washing and hulling the strawberries. Slice them into thin, even slices and place them in a bowl. Sprinkle the sugar over the strawberries and gently toss to coat. Let them sit for about 15 minutes to macerate, allowing their natural juices to meld with the sugar.
  2. In a separate bowl, whip the heavy cream and vanilla extract until stiff peaks form. This will be your luscious whipped cream topping.
  3. Now, it’s time to assemble your mini dessert delights. Take a shortcake cup and spoon some of the macerated strawberries into the bottom. Top with a dollop of the freshly whipped cream.
  4. Repeat the layers, finishing with a generous swirl of whipped cream on top. Garnish with a sprig of fresh mint for that extra touch of elegance.
  5. Serve immediately and savor the symphony of flavors as the sweet, juicy strawberries, airy whipped cream, and crumbly shortcake dance on your taste buds.
