To me, nothing says summer in the midwest like shortcake biscuits heaped high with sweet, juicy strawberries and fluffy, billowy whipped cream (especially since farmer’s market strawberries just arrive here in Chicago!) I played around with my recipe a bit to create a slightly sweet biscuit, infused with a hint of vanilla bean and orange. To round out the flavor, I added a hint of orange juice to the whipping cream recipe. Topped with the strawberries, the result is a traditional strawberry shortcake with a hint of orangy freshness and comforting vanilla. One taste and you’ll know that summer has finally arrived.
