Thanks so much for all the great suggestions on my daughter's apartment. I hope to have photo's to share with you on my progress next week:)
But for now I want to talk shortcake....My Mama Stella Mae was a wonderful cook and every Summer she would take the best seasonal fruit and make THE BEST shortcakes. Here is how Stella Mae made those sweet little shortcakes~
Take some yummy ripe fruit like peaches or strawberries~
Wash, slice and place in a bowl~
Squeeze a little fresh lemon juice to keep the fruit from turning brown and then add a good helping (3/4-1 cup) of sugar. Toss together~
Cover the fruit with plastic wrap or cheese cloth and place outside in direct sunlight for about an hour. The sun will bake the fruit and create a ton of flavorful juice.
While your fruit is baking in the sun, make your little cakes. My Mama always made homemade biscuits for her shortcakes. I used a box of Jiffy mix and made dropped biscuits.
Split the biscuits and drizzle some of the juice from the fruit on top. Add a layer of fruit and top it off with handmade whipped cream. Enjoy:)
