This is a short cut to “shortcake” that is simple and delicious. My mom used to make this quite a bit during the summer months growing up. Just bake up a pie shell, crumble, throw in some berries and top with whipped cream. You’ll have dessert in no time!
What You’ll Need Per Person:
1/2 cup of sliced strawberries
1/2 cup of blueberries
1 tablespoon of organic cane sugar
1 cup of pie crust, baked and crumbled
Slice strawberries and add blueberries and sugar. Let sit for 30 minutes to one hour in the fridge or until syrup forms.
Bake pie crust and crumble.
In a single serving bowl top crumbled pie crust with berry/sugar mixture and whipped cream. Repeat for each person. Serve immediately. How simple is that?
Notes: I don’t care for raspberries, but you could easily add those in with or instead of the blueberries and strawberries. Blackberries would also be good, as would peaches. Mix it up. You can serve the pie crust warm or at room temperature. Either way is delicious.
