SURVEY: Do you slice strawberries for shortcake or smoosh them? Whipped cream or not?


#1

I smoosh 'em. Husband likes (insists on) whipped cream, I don’t.

And after making shortcake from Bisquick for 40 years, we both decided we like the little foam thingies from the store better.


#2

I halve them, them slightly smoosh 'em. Sugar brings out the juice and makes 'em smooshier.

ex-husbands family always used biscuits, poured a lil’ milk over 'em, then whipped cream. I kinda prefer angel food cake or a simple yellow pound cake-type thingie.


#3

Sweet cream biscuits, sliced. And whipped cream. Whenever there’s a question of adding whipped cream, the answer is always yes.*

*if it’s real whipped cream, not the stuff from a can or cool-whip.


#4

Little cup like cakes they sell next to the strawberries. Cut berries. Usually can whip cream.


#5

I feel compelled to apologize for the fact that I’m a whipped cream snob.

I’m sorry.

The canned stuff is fine. I just really like making whipped cream…it’s like making meringue (which I don’t like at all)…fun to watch a liquid form soft peaks!


#6

It scares me. Cold bowl, cold beaters, don’t beat too little, it melts; don’t beat too much, you have butter.


#7

Sliced and Hell yes!


#8

semi-smooshed on biscuits or cake or the spongie, twinkie-like things ot pound cake or marble cake or icecream cake. Always with whipped cream - fresh-whipped or from a can or cool whip.


#9

Combo of sliced strawberries and squished ones in the middle of the layers and whole strawberries on top. Have to have lots of whipped cream on it. Although I will eat it any way someone wants to make it unless it’s made with chocolate cake.

Didn’t we have a survey before as to what kind of cake/biscuit we prefer with strawberry shortcake?


#10

That was a million strawberries ago!!


#11

Might have, but that brain cell died.


#12

lol

Definitely my favorite fruit. Pineapple comes in a close second.


#13

That thread was over a year ago…no wonder you don’t remember.


#14

Damn, read that and found out I should have bought pound cake. More than one brain cell dead.


#15

Sliced is preferred, natural juices, no heavy syrup/sweet jell. I love real whip cream, but since Ver1 is allergic to milk protein and Ver2 is intolerant . . . . I don’t get it very often.

I’ve only turned whipping cream to butter once, and I was doing a dozen other things at the time.


#16

How do I have them? Sliced with a bit of sugar as needed or if needed & cool whip.

How do I like them? Sliced with lots of sugar to make lots of syrup and heavy whipped cream.


#17

Sliced with sugar and cool whip on biscuits. I like them on pound cake. I like them plain. I love to whir them in my ninja with sugar, ice, 7up and a squeeze of lime (rum is optional). Daughter likes them in the ninja with ice and milk, a little sugar.


#18

btw, if I should start to do this survey again next year, somebody just slap me.


#19

A better idea is that next June I start a new thread called…

Do you like your strawberry shortcake made with pound cake like Poof does?

:wink:


#20

That’ll work.
