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.

  • 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!

  • 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.

    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.

  • 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.

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

  • 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.

  • 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. 🙂 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.

    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.

  • 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.
