Strawberry shortcake is definitely one of our favorite summertime desserts, and the sweetness from locally picked berries is absolutely unbeatable. To celebrate National Pick Strawberries Day, we encourage you all to use today as the perfect excuse to pick your own strawberries or snatch some up some from a local stand and enjoy the sweet fruits of summer.

We don’t know about you, but we are totally going to try this biscuit recipe, which bakes the berries straight into the bread, leaving hardly any mess at the dinner table.

The recipe from Smitten Kitchen, one of our very favorite food bloggers, is a huge sigh of relief for those of us who are looking for a delicious seasonal recipe with very few ingredients. This recipe just calls for the basics: flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, butter, cream, and strawberries, so you know we’re all over this one!

Not only is this recipe quick and simple, it sounds like a great summer project for you and the kids! Have the little ones sift the flour, measure the sugar, or crush the berries instead of chop them for some gooey fun.

Take a stab at this super easy recipe and let us know how it turned out!
