Whole Grain Shortcakes with Berries & Cream (URS: Easter)

Posted By Jessica Fisher On April 20, 2011 @ 7:09 pm In Breads & Baked Goods,Easter,Recipes,URS | 21 Comments

I love inviting people over for Easter. Last year we had my mom, my brothers, a family friend, and an earthquake. Hopefully, this year we’ll have family and friends — without the rocking and the rolling.

And while I love all the savory foods that comprise a big dinner, I really look forward to a tasty dessert. I want something sweet, something tart, something soft, something crisp. And this dessert has got all the bases covered.

Plus, it’s very make-ahead. It wouldn’t be me if you couldn’t make it in advance, now would it?

I just don’t like to fuss at the last minute.

The Whole Grain Shortcakes really are “whole grain” since they contain whole wheat pastry flour and oat flour. They are buttery and crisp, and good all by themselves with a cup of tea or coffee. I served them recently with blackberries that I bought on sale, but they would be good with any fresh fruit. Try them out with strawberries, raspberries, or chopped peaches. And of course, make sure you whip a big bowl of cream [4].

You will have a fabulous dessert for Easter.

What desserts do you like to serve for Easter?
