recipe

This recipe makes four blueberry and four strawberry shortcakes. If you prefer to make just one flavor, simply double the amount of whichever berry you choose, and don’t divide the dry ingredients between two bowls. The shortcakes are best the day they are made.

recipe

A good tip for picking out perfectly ripe peaches is that the fruit should be very fragrant; if it doesn't smell like a peach, it won't taste like a peach.From the book "Mad Hungry," by Lucinda Scala Quinn (Artisan Books).

recipe

Strawberry shortcake never tasted so good -- or so nuanced. Heavy cream is steeped with basil then whipped, infusing it with its essence. Cover the cream with plastic wrap while it steeps to ensure that the basil flavor doesn't evaporate.
