Let’s make mini strawberry shortcake stacks

I haven’t met too many people in this world who don’t enjoy strawberries.  It’s difficult to resist the sweet burst of berry goodness when you bite into a perfectly ripe strawberry, that’s for sure.  

They’re also super cute, make some of the best desserts (like this Strawberry Tart), jams/jellies, smoothies and ice cream, and are 100% in season right now.  We have a giant strawberry patch (and when I say giant, I mean GIANT), so we are on currently on strawberry overload.  

No complaints here, other than the fact that it takes hours to harvest them all; albeit they’re fun hours.  So please be on alert for 45 strawberry recipes in the near future.

Okay, that might be a bit of an exaggeration, but you know what I’m sayin’.

How do you feel about mini desserts?

One of my very favorite desserts is strawberry shortcake.  I mean, how can you go wrong with fluffy, buttery buttermilk biscuits, sweet strawberry filling and vanilla mascarpone whip?  

And because I like mini foods, I went with Mini Strawberry Shortcake Stacks… why not?

How adorable are these lil stacks?  I seriously want to just stare at them all day long.  And then eat them, of course.
