strawberry shortcake cookies

Let’s get one thing straight about these Strawberry Shortcake Cookies– they are cakes. If we are calling them cookies, it’s only because they are little two-bite babies. This is about the easiest sponge cake in the world to make, though, and the batter bakes up into nice little rounds in a muffin tin. Each round is a self-contained shortcake, with a small blob of strawberry compote (I used some roasted strawberries I made for something else a while back, although you could also just use jam) topped with some sweetened whipped cream and sliced berries. I made the sour cream whipped cream because I like the tang alongside the sweetness of everything else. These weren’t hard to make, but they are tasty and pretty. You can make the little sponges ahead of time (I have some in the freezer now) and top them as you need them. As the summer moves along, other berries will work just as beautifully.

  1. Delicious 😀

  2. Your shortcake ‘cookies’ look so delectable crowned with fluffy whipped cream and dripping roasted strawberries. What a delicious idea to make and use roasted strawberries during the season. I have some strawberries in the fridge right now. ‘Think I’ll borrow a page out of your book and roast up some. Yum!

  3. These seem to be a hit with the group. I am looking forward to making them at the end of the month.

  4. yum! particularly love the sour cream pairing!

  5. Looks great, yum 🙂
