Welcome to the kickoff of our holiday baking series! I absolutely adore Christmas. It is the one holiday that I will unabashedly decorate my house for, drag my family to holiday events around town, and bake enough cookies to feed an army. I created a cookie this year just for my daughter, Thora, who loves all things pink and strawberry flavored. I am not a fan of food coloring, so I am always looking for creative ways to add color to her cookies. Inspiration hit when I was tossing a couple bags of freeze-dried strawberries into the grocery cart.
This is a special post. A joint post by Carmi and Ashley gets you double the recipes. Hope you enjoy and Happy 4th!
Summertime desserts are all about highlighting produce at its peak, while trying to stay cool! Strawberry shortcake is a quintessential summer dessert. Fresh berries, cold vanilla bean flecked whipped cream, and a buttery crumbly shortcake makes for a winning combination. Although cold butter technically can’t be used in the plastic whipping bowl, using frozen grated butter is a great workaround that allows shortcakes and biscuits to be made with the Ankarsrum.
