Strawberry Shortcakes

Note to self: This was inspired by Sania, she had posted about making strawberry shortcakes and told me about the amazing Bon Appetit recipe on their website. I gave it a shot and boy oh boy…this was PHENOMENAL! I adapted the recipe ever so slightly and the shortcakes were so soft and buttery and delicious….

Sfeeha (Lebanese Meat Pies)

Homejabi DIY Sliding Pantry
