Warm Strawberry Shortcake

Traditional Strawberry Shortcake is served with chilled strawberries, but in this variation, the sweet warm strawberries melt the whipped cream topping and soak into the shortcake.

Warm Strawberry Shortcake

2 cups strawberries, de-stemmed and quartered

4 TBS sugar
1 pkg. shortcake shells
whipped cream

Place strawberries in a medium sauce pan with about a cup of water. Warm to bubbling and add sugar. Stir to dissolve. When berries are softened, remove from heat. Place a shortcake shell on serving plates, and spoon strawberry mixture over each shell. Drizzle the cakes and plates with strawberry liquid. Just before serving, top with a generous scoop of whipped cream.

You might choose to top with a few slivered almonds and serve with flavored coffee.
