Lavender Strawberry Shortcake

pict00143This recipe uses the lavender shortbread from last weekends post to create a quick but creative dessert, that’s if you have any left of course! 

To make the shortbread, see lavender shortbread recipe below. 

 

 

 

Ingredients – makes 6-8

  • lavender shortbread biscuits
  • 150 ml whipping cream
  • 150 ml mascapone
  • 1 punnet/chip of strawberries 

Method

  • Place mascapone & cream in a bowl.
  • Whisk until thickened.
  • Hull and slice or quarter strawberries.
  • Place tablespoon of thickened cream mixture in the centre of one shortbread.
  • Arrange  as many strawberry pieces on top of cream mixture as you wish (or can manage!)
  • Place another shortbread biscuit on top.
  • Dust with icing sugar and garnish with lavender

I have not added sugar to the cream and mascapone mix as I find it sweet enough but if you would like it sweeter add a few teaspoons of sugar to the mix before you whip it.
