Strawberry Shortcake

Besides succulent fresh, ripe strawberries, the key to a great strawberry shortcake lies in the quality of the biscuit. And this one is top-notch. These tender, sweet buttermilk biscuits are made with a blend of cake flour and whole-wheat flour and lightened by substituting reduced-fat cream cheese for some of the butter. As a delicately tangy alternative to whipped cream, we use a blend of cream and reduced-fat sour cream.

Fruit-Filled Crepes

This dessert or special brunch dish is great for entertaining because it can be made in advance and popped in the oven just before serving. Strawberry-rhubarb filling is a lovely salute to the season and is also delicious as a topping for ice cream.

Strawberry Rhubarb Pie

Rhubarb and strawberries go hand in hand, and what better way to honor the combination than in this classic summer pie. The lattice top looks fancy but the technique is super-easy to master.

Strawberry Sherbet

Buttermilk gives this sherbet tanginess and complements the fresh sweet strawberries. If you prefer a sweeter result, add a touch more sugar.

Although you can get strawberries grown in Florida, California and points beyond all year long, there’s nothing better than picking your own fully ripe berries in season. You can inhale the sweet fragrance, sample often, stain your fingers and pile up way more than you can use. Health-wise, strawberries are great—they boast fiber, more vitamin C than any other berry, and 1 cup of fresh whole strawberries has a respectable 35 micrograms of folate, the powerful B vitamin that creates normal red blood cells and is crucial for prenatal development. The anthocyanidins found in these ruby mouthfuls also help protect against heart disease. Get inspired with these delicious strawberry recipes. All are worthy of whipping up for a little strawberry social with family or friends.
