Tuesdays with Dorie
We had a family discussion about cookie versus cake. My son looked up the definition of a cookie "a small sweet cake, typically round, flat, and crisp". Dorie's Strawberry Shortcake Cookies almost fit this definition except crisp. This dessert became my family's Memorial Day treat, it fit the bill of being patriotic.
The hardest part of this dessert is buttering and flouring the pans. My sponge cakes came out perfect with a twelve minute bake. I made the strawberry compote sans rose extract. Don't tell Dorie but I didn't make the whipped cream from scratch. Strawberry Shortcakes!, what's not to like? Thank you to my husband for setting up the shot and my son for taking the photo, a true family affair.
