Hello friends and happy spring day to you! Today we’re going to have some fun…I’ve teamed up with some very talented Canadian bloggers to throw a Spring Dinner Party for you!  You’ll be able to travel from blog to blog to get some inspiration for your very own spring inspired dinner party!  Everything from desserts (that’s me!) to appetizers to printable menus to kids table ideas, party favours and more!  SO MUCH FUN.

Ready? Let’s have dessert first mmmkay?  Why not…internet desserts have no calories right?  So we can eat them when ever we darn well please.  Plus this dessert has fruit so it’s practically good for you… 😉

Strawberry Shortcakes with Strawberry Fluff Filling

Seriously Delicious!

For this spring party I made Strawberry Shortcakes with White Chocolate Vanilla Shortcake Biscuits, fresh Strawberries and Strawberry Fluff Filling. What takes this dessert to the next level is the delicious fluff filling made with strawberry cream cheese, marshmallow fluff and whipped cream. The filling is so good you can eat it as a stand alone fruit dip.

White Chocolate Scones

The shortcakes for this dessert are sweet scones studded with white chocolate chunks. They are also delicious as a stand alone biscuit/scone…perfect served with tea!

Finish off with fresh strawberries!

To complete these little shortcakes, serve them with fresh sliced strawberries. Fresh strawberries add the perfect amount of crunch and sweetness to this dessert.

These Strawberry Shortcakes are such a pretty and easy spring dessert, and your family will love them!

About the ingredients + Recipe Tips:

  • Marshmallow Fluff:  Sometimes called Marshmallow Creme. You can find it in small plastic containers in the candy aisle (sometimes it’s also in the baking aisle) of your grocery store. The containers are usually 198 g which is what I use.
  • Strawberry Cream Cheese:  I use the 227 g Philadelphia Spreadable Strawberry Cream Cheese
  • Whipping Cream:  The whipped cream should be unsweetened. Whip the whipping cream first, before you add the remaining ingredients.
  • Make Ahead: You can make this fluff and scones a day ahead of time. Refrigerate the fluff in an air-tight container in the fridge, and store the scones in an air-tight container on the counter. Assemble the shortcakes right before you serve them.

  • Category: Dessert

Ingredients

Scale

White Chocolate Vanilla Shortcake Biscuits:

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup of cold butter (cut into small chunks)
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 3/4 cup white chocolate chips

Strawberry Fluff:

  • 1/2 cup of marshmallow cream (fluff)
  • 1/4 of a 250g package of spreadable strawberry cream cheese at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup of whipped whipping cream (make sure you whip it up first before combining all the ingredients)
  • 2 cups of sliced fresh strawberries

Instructions

White Chocolate Vanilla Shortcake Biscuits:

  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. In a bowl whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  3. Using a pastry cutter, cut the cold butter into the flour mixture until the butter is pea sized.
  4. Stir in the cream until the dough is moistened, but be careful not to over mix it or the biscuits will be tough.
  5. Stir in the white chocolate chips.
  6. Lay a sheet of wax or parchment paper onto your counter.
  7. Press the dough into a ball and transfer it on to the paper and press it down into a disk. Then using a rolling pin, roll and flatten the dough to a 1/2 inch thickness.
  8. Using a small cup or circle cookie cutter, cut out the dough (I would make the biscuits a maximum 2 inch width in size. Even 1 inch would be great so you could have bite sized biscuits).
  9. If you are baking 2 inch biscuits, bake them for ~6 minutes, or less time if you are making the 1 inch biscuits. The biscuits are done when the bottom edges are slightly brown.
  10. When they are done baking, transfer the biscuits to a cooling rack.
  11. Let the scones cool completely before adding the fruit fluff.

Strawberry Fluff:

  1. In a mixer, combine all the ingredients, and beat until smooth.

Putting the Strawberry Shortcakes together:

  1. For each strawberry shortcake you will need 2 biscuits.
  2. Spread as much of the strawberry fluff that you would like on to one biscuit, then add some fresh strawberries then top with the other biscuit.
  3. And now enjoy!
