If you know me or have been reading my blog for any amount of time now, you might know that I am absolutely in love with Joanna Gaines's recipe for JoJo's Biscuits. As with most of the recipes that I have cooked from the Magnolia Table Cookbook Vol. 1 so far, this Strawberry Shortcake doesn't disappoint!
I feel like I am going to start sounding like a broken record, but everything I have made from the Magnolia Table Cookbook so far is super simple. It seems to be the trend with this cookbook. I mean, if I had four kids running around the kitchen while I was trying to make dinner as Joanna would, I guess that I would want my recipes to be as easy as possible.
This is the easiest summer dessert there is. If you want to take your whipped cream to the next level add in some vanilla bean paste in place of the vanilla extract, this is my favorite!
Another round of ooh's and ahhh's from everyone at the table. It's like a summer dream straight off of the grounds of Wimbledon, strawberries, and cream mixed with a beautifully fluffy biscuit, heaven!
But not like you need to hear any more praise from me on this recipe, lemme just stop ya right now. Just go make it! The recipe is at the bottom of this review. Even if you don't have the cookbook, she shared it online as part of her cooking show launch.
The hardest part of making this Strawberry Shortcake is making the biscuits, but I would suggest making your breakfast biscuits a 1 ½ batch and then putting some in the freezer or using the extra for this. Then chop up your strawberries and whip your cream and you're all ready to go.
Another note for the in particular. I like to bake the biscuits for these not touching, opposed to touching like the recipe calls for. This helps them to develop a little bit of a peak in the middle.
I like to cut out the peak and fill the middle with cream and berries and then add the biscuit piece back on top and repeat! It makes it a little Napoleonic, and be sure not to skimp on the cream! Any way you do it, it's sure to be a crowd-pleaser.
Overall, this is a recipe that summer dreams are made of. Every time I make a batch of biscuits I save a few or make a little extra to stowe away for using to make this or to enjoy with some nutella!
Until next time, happy cooking!

MY FAVORITE KITCHEN TOOLS!
Here are a few links to some of my favorite kitchen tools! You get a car, YOu get a car, YOU ALL GET A CAR…in my best Oprah voice
These Rösle Silicone Tongs are a little pricey but they will last you the rest of your life and are the softest in your hand. This is important for someone like m that cooks so much. It reduces strain, I have 4 sets in my kitchen!
These are my FAVE Nordic Ware Sheet Pans, every kitchen should have at least 2 sets of these! I think I have at least 4 of each of these.
This is my favorite pressure cooker, the Fagor is the same concept as the “Instant Pot” but easier to use in my opinion, if you don’t have one you NEED one, it will be your best friend in the kitchen!
A sharp knife is the most important tool in the kitchen, these Japanese steel “Shun” knives are my favorite! And this is a great starter set to build on. Once you try them you will be in love so use this as a foundation you can build on for years to come.
This Scanpan 11″ skillet is just the right size for almost anything you will need to cook and my best friend and a real workhorse in my kitchen, it’s also a great deal at $99. Scanpan is the best in the world for healthy cooking. It is coated with a proprietary ceramic-titanium coating that is durable while allowing you to use fewer fats and oils when cooking. It is a coating only they use. I could talk all day about my love for these pans, message me if you want more info. Here are some other sizes that are available if you are looking to outfit your kitchen with some new goodies. 8″ & 10″ Skillet set or 8″ Skillet, I still need this one for my kitchen Also, I don’t really know how to cook small so the 12.5″ is my other fave!
This giant vat of olive oil is my favorite, I decant it into a smaller bottle for my counter. Or put this spigot on top of a wine bottle!
My favorite baking dish that is so easy to clean even burnt on cheese slides right off!
This Tovolo jar scraper has to be my single favorite kitchen tool, it is definitely the most used tool in my kitchen. If you are NOT a gadget person, this is the only necessity I say is a MUST beyond the wooden spoon.
A great wood spoon is essential, this Olive Wood one is my favorite, I have more than I can count. But can you really ever have too many?
A food scale can be a very important tool in your kitchen, this one is the one I use every day!
