Strawberry Shortcake with Honey Lemon Cream

strawberry shortcake with honey lemon cream recipe

Update: the winner of the Honey Creme Gift Set is Comment #94 Mary from Sisters Running in the Kitchen! Check out her blog (she writes it with her sister), it is adorable and she makes me homesick with her reviews of restaurants from my home town.

Also, you guys sure do like your spring desserts! Looks like I am going to have to add some rhubarb recipes to the site!

Yesterday was my baby’s 3rd birthday. It was a trifle traumatic for me. I no longer have a baby in my house. I only have kids. 3 just seems old to me. He still has a lot of baby-like qualities, like the pacifier, (which I know needs to go, but I dread the drama that goes along with taking it away) and the fact that his favorite thing to do is snuggle his momma. But soon I will be sending him off to college. My husband makes fun of my theatrics when it comes to our youngest child, he says that I baby him. And coddle him. And indulge him. And you know what I say? Sue me! I baby my baby! He just loves me so, that it is hard not to. He is just not being honest with himself, he will miss having a baby around too.

strawberry shortcake with honey lemon cream recipeHow did I go from strawberry shortcake to a therapy session? Sorry ’bout that.

strawberry shortcake with honey lemon cream recipeBack to strawberry, lemon, honey, and cream goodness. Remember a few weeks ago when I told you about some stuff I am really into right now? Well, the Honey Ridge Farms Honey Creme Lemon is still a bit of an obsession. On toast, a pan sauce for chicken, with some cheese and crackers; it is tangy and slightly sweet, and just about perfect on anything. I made those delicious Cream Cheese Biscuits with this creation in mind. I thought it would be good. I just didn’t know how good. So good, that I had about half of the one pictured above and immediately packed the rest up and delivered it to the neighbors. Be warned.

Since I am in a generous mood and my baby just turned 3, I will send a random commenter a Honey Creme Gift Set from Honey Ridge Farms. Leave a comment below between now and 11:59PM, May 2nd, and I will send you this Gift Set just because I like you.

    My favorite spring time dessert is any type of berries with homemade whip cream. YUM!

    April 27th, 2011 at 8:40 am

    We love strawberry shortcake!!! I have never tried it with a slather of Honey Lemon Creme, but I would love to try it! I know what you mean about holding on to your babies. My oldest is heading off to college and my youngest just turned thirteen! I think it’s a husband thing, my husband says I am still babying my “babies”, Can’t help it though – it’s a mom thing! Thanks for sharing!

    I think we’ve been having the same week. Only it wasn’t my baby that had a birthday it was my oldest, and he turned 10. It snuck up on me a bit (dramatic sigh) and has felt a lot bigger than I had anticipated. My husband gives me a hard time about it too. Must be something just mamas go through.

    This looks like a beautiful dessert…the strawberries are perfect!

  6. Annalise

    April 27th, 2011 at 8:48 am

    Yum! I mad something very similar for our easter dessert. It’s perfect for spring. Love you photos, as always!

  7. Kate

    April 27th, 2011 at 8:49 am

    I wish that it were already strawberry shortcake season out here in Denver, alas I might just have to pretend…

  8. Nicole

    April 27th, 2011 at 8:49 am

    Mmm, delicious! I LOVE whipped cream- fresh and made from local milk and sweetened with local honey.

  9. Erin Zackey

    April 27th, 2011 at 8:58 am

    Oh, my baby is turning 3 in a short while too. Yikes I know just how you feel! My aunt made a delicious lemon tart with blueberries on top (which she torched with one of those cute little kitchen torches) and it was perfect for spring!

    I love to hear about what goes on in your family and with your little ones. I can really relate to being a mama to a sweet little boy who loves to snuggle! Thanks for all your recipes and stories, this blog has become a daily little joy in my life! Favorite springtime desert? Something with rhubarb. Up here in the Northeast (Vermont), rhubarb is one of the first things to start growing, often poking up out of the snow. We are just so grateful to have something fresh and tangy from our own backyard, after the long, cold winter.

    I love your blog and even though I am a Nana now instead of a young mom (though it seems like yesterday) I completely get you plus I LOVE to cook too. I have used several of your recipes and they have now become favorites.

  18. Holly Sisson

    April 27th, 2011 at 9:35 am

    This looks so yummy! I think any dessert with fresh whipped cream and fruit is a winner for spring, or anytime of year for that matter. πŸ˜‰

  19. Carisa

    April 27th, 2011 at 9:38 am

    Oh my goodness, these are perfect to make for a BBQ this weekend! Thank you for the recipe, they sound delish. On a side note, your son is adorable! =)

    A perfect summer day is when the sun is shining, the breeze is blowing, the birds are singing, and the lawn mower is broken. (James Dent).
    Bree, thanks for your blog, it’s pretty much the only one I read regularly, and as you can see from FB, I’ve used also (people love the garlicky rolls and cinnamon rolls are for this weekends guests).
    Catch you soon – hope the Tuesday night classes are going well.

  22. Leillani

    April 27th, 2011 at 9:55 am

    This looks absolutely delicious!!! I recently discovered your blog and your recipes have proved to be a yummy succes. Had planned to make the cream cheese biscuits this week so I will definitely try this.

  23. Amy Kalinchuk

    April 27th, 2011 at 9:59 am

    I think your version of Strawberry Shortcake is my new favorite springtime dessert, and I haven’t even tasted it yet. I have to see if my Whole Foods here in Denver carries that honey lemon creme. Nom!

  24. Jennifer

    April 27th, 2011 at 10:10 am

    Strawberry shortcake is absolutely my favorite springtime dessert. And I have no guilt about my dollops of whipped cream…I wish I were your neighbor!

  25. Amanda

    April 27th, 2011 at 10:12 am

    Favorite Spring dessert is hands down my mama’s pineapple orange sunshine cake. It’s citrusy with a nice cool creamy frosting… it just screams spring. Although, coconut cakes during easter weekend are becoming a favorite.

  26. Alex

    April 27th, 2011 at 10:15 am

    LOVE this blog – it’s my new favorite! Check it everyday πŸ™‚

    Strawberry shortcake is such a lovely thing.

  29. Crystal Garcia

    April 27th, 2011 at 10:30 am

    My favorite springtime dessert is definitely Strawberry Shortcake or pretty much anything with berries! That lemon curd looks amazing ;0)

  30. Jennifer

    April 27th, 2011 at 10:35 am

    I love strawberry shortcake, but adding a little lemon cream sounds utterly divine.

    And I know what you mean about the pacifier. My son’s 2 and we only use it for naps and bedtime, but I dread giving it up as well because he sleeps so well with it.

    I look forward to meeting you this weekend at Camp Blogaway.

  31. Dianna

    April 27th, 2011 at 10:50 am

    These shortcakes seem like the perfect thing to distract one from life’s unpleasantries such as realizing your baby is growing up WAY too fast. πŸ™‚ My favorite springtime desserts this year have all had a common theme: Lemon. Buttermilk Lemon Poundcake, Lemon Thin cookies… maybe it’s just because lemons are bright & cheerful, and therefore automatically register as “Springy” in my brain. Anyway, Happy Birthday to your sweet little one and thanks for sharing another great recipe.

  32. See Nikki Cook

    April 27th, 2011 at 10:53 am

    Favorite Spring Time Dessert–anything with berries, berries taste so good after a long winter!!!!

  33. karin

    April 27th, 2011 at 10:54 am

    Oh, I would love to try the honey creme set. Just sounds scrumptous.
    I totally understand how you miss the baby stage. I have a 2.5 year old, and I miss the baby stage so much. Just last night, I was watching videos of him as a baby. Wow, the time has just gone by so quick. I would love to have another, but not at 43.
    Love you blog and enjoy your recipes. Thanks for all you do.

  34. Jeni

    April 27th, 2011 at 10:55 am

  35. Ingrid Burton

    April 27th, 2011 at 11:12 am

    This looks yummy! My favorite springtime dessert is probably my grandmother’s pound cake with strawberries and whipped cream on top, or a key lime pie, or a lemon bar, or… Now I’m hungry!

  36. julie

    April 27th, 2011 at 11:13 am

    I think strawberry shortcake is probably my favorite dessert, well, non-chocolate dessert. For us – Easter, Mother’s Day and my birthday, which is also in the spring, mean strawberry shortcake as the celebration dessert!

  37. Cassandra

    April 27th, 2011 at 11:13 am

    My favorite springtime dessert would have to be fresh strawberry pie! So simple, yet oh so good!

  38. Sandy

    April 27th, 2011 at 11:17 am

    Love your recipes, Bree. But especially the anecdotal comments that introduce them. I think your blog is the best part of this new technology we have today! When I think of Spring desserts, I want rhubarb. Here in Minnesota, Rhubarb custard cake is the best (in my opinion). Along with strawberry rhubarb pie, rhubarb bars, etc.

  39. Brittany

    April 27th, 2011 at 11:19 am

    My baby just turned 1 today! So yes, we’re still in baby stages but I see her becoming more & more a toddler every day. Perhaps we both have been reminiscing of the day they graced the world with their presence πŸ™‚ God Bless you – your children are darling!

  40. Kelli

    April 27th, 2011 at 11:20 am

  46. Nitasha

    April 27th, 2011 at 12:07 pm

    Yum! Just so you know, I use your recipies at least once a month. Everything always looks super delicous….and I am imagining that Honey Lemon in a chicken salad with poppyseeds and fruit. Mmmmm….

  47. Nitasha

    April 27th, 2011 at 12:09 pm

    Whoops! I forgot to say that my favorite springtime dessert is grilled mango with a scoop of natural vanilla ice cream. PERFECT!

  48. Jenny

    April 27th, 2011 at 12:17 pm

    It’s so hard to choose a favorite springtime dessert! I love strawberry shortcake, and plan to make it with your cream cheese biscuits this weekend! With tons of whipped cream, of course!

    Key Lime Pie. I’m not sure why I think of spring when I eat it though.

  56. Ann

    April 27th, 2011 at 2:15 pm

    I would love to use the honey creme to make these shortcakes! And also eat honey creme off a spoon…

    Basically any dessert. I’m a glutton with a sweet tooth.

  80. jennifer

    April 27th, 2011 at 11:28 pm

  81. kandace

    April 28th, 2011 at 3:58 am

    I think that I would have to say cherry cheesecake but then there are so many terrific desserts out there it was a very hard question to answer. Also anything with chocolate is always a hit.

  82. Erin

    April 28th, 2011 at 4:17 am

    Blackberry Yogurt Pie… depending on when the berries are ready to pick, it sometimes is more of a favorite summer dessert though!

  85. Alesha

    April 28th, 2011 at 7:00 am

  89. Amanda

    April 28th, 2011 at 7:36 am

    Oh wow, I’d seriously have to pick strawberry shortcake as well! I haven’t tried using the cream cheese biscuits (though I will), but I love mine with cream scones, lavender & honey-marinated strawberries, and almond-scented whipped cream. Spring and summer in my mouth all at once πŸ™‚

  90. Katy

    i LOVE fruit desserts.
    the thing i love about this one, is that its not traditional shortcake.
    I’ve never been a huge fan of that but i adore desserts like this one!

    When I saw the recipe for the cream cheese biscuits I immediately thought of strawberries and cream and then you posted this to my suprise, but obviously made it better with some honey/lemon creme πŸ™‚ yum.

    Your son is precious, just know you can still call them babies for a lot longer. My nephew is about to turn 8 and he still lets me call him baby… hopefully he never makes me stop.

    thanks for the opportunity to win, and cheers!

    I’m going to say that in my eyes, dessert has no seasons. =0) But since our lemons are nearly ready to pick and my 5 year old keeps begging for lemon squares, I’ll go with lemon squares!

    Happy (belated) Birthday to Clay!!

    Happy Birthday Clay! His pictures are adorable Bree. My favorite spring time dessert is a fresh fruit pavlova with blackberries and raspberries.

    I love strawberry shortcake, because the strawberries are finally in season and so delicious!

  125. Ronda

    Strawberry Shortcake is one of my favorite to make especially when entertaining in the Spring. I have never made it with Lemon, but this has my mind buzzing with ideas. Honey Lemon Cream sounds incredible.

    My favorite Spring Dessert is most anything that has lemon it in. Lemon screams Spring and goes with so many things….ooooooh, now I am hungry thinking of all the possibilities!

    Hi Bree, I have been following your blog, and I cannot begin to tell you how much I love it. You step by step pictures are so helpful, and all of your recipes are excellent.
    The honey lemon creme looks divine, even more so because I LOVE lemon.
    As for my favorite springtime dessert? Definitely cheesecake. Of course, I am a cheesecake fanatic and would eat it every day if I could, but i just love a cold piece of cheesecake on a warm spring day, especially with a handful of fresh raspberries. That is just heaven in your mouth. πŸ™‚

    Hi! I stumbled upon your blog while looking up images of doves for work… I’m loving reading through your recipes and your photography is really incredible! Do you make up your recipes or are they things you’ve tweaked here and there or both? Great stuff I subscribed today… Happy birthday to your son!

    I am a huge fan of strawberry rhubarb anything. My mom makes these strawberry rhubarb bars that have a shortbread layer, followed by the fruit, and then topped with a large amount of crumble. They are amazing…especially when warm and topped with ice cream.
