Delicious Strawberry Shortcakes with feather-light and slightly lemony little biscuit cakes piled high with homemade whipped cream and farm-fresh strawberries.  Oh. my.


  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2/3 cups cold butter (chopped into small cubes)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2/3 cups milk
  • zest of 1 lemon



Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

Combine dry ingredients. Cut in butter until completely incorporated and mixture looks like small crumbs. Set mixture aside.

  Add eggs to a separate bowl and whisk. Add milk and lemon and whisk once more. Pour into the bowl of dry ingredients and stir, just until moistened.

Using a biscuit cutter, cut into individual biscuits. Place biscuits on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes, or until puffed and golden brown.

Layer shortcakes with homemade whipped cream and strawberries. (If they’re tiny berries like mine were, you can leave them whole. If they’re large berries, slice before serving.)

And for a final sweet touch, dust with powdered sugar.

(This recipe makes about 12-13 standard-size biscuit shortcakes).




In 2002, I was dreaming of creating a fun and happy little event to sell my vintage and handmade goods. In 2002, I held my first event in my neighbor's barn along with a handful of friends. The sale became wildly popular and began attracting visitors from across the country and recognition in national magazines. Today The Farm Chicks Vintage & Handmade Fair fills the Spokane County Fairgrounds and features hundreds of creatively and carefully curated spaces packed with vintage and handmade goods. Many describe it as a bucket list event, magical, inspirational, and the best event of its kind in the USA. I describe it as the best weekend of the year!
