Week 44 – Historic/Famous Dishes

Happy 4th of July! 

I tried to find the food they ate after the signing of the Declaration of Independence, but apparently there is no known record of the post-signing celebratory meal. 

But it is strawberry season, which is my favorite fruit, so I did some research and found an old old recipe – Strawberry Shortcake.  Shortcakes have been around for years in various forms. 

It’s also my birthday! So my mom and I decided we’d make some strawberry shortcakes together! (When I say we, I mean she, I just took pictures). 

She mixed up the dry ingredients: flour, sugar, baking powder, salt. 

Cut in the butter. 

Kneaded in some cream until it stuck together. 

Kneaded & rolled the dough. 

Cut out the shortcakes. 

Baked away. 

Split the short cakes, topped with strawberries, and ice cream. 


The shortcakes were flaky and yummy, and we put ice cream I the middle for some added deliciousness!

Thanks, mom, for such yummy treats!

Come back next week for some ‘Murica dishes!
