Maine Strawberry Shortcake

Strawberry shortcake is a beloved classic dessert that has stood the test of time. This delightful treat is perfect for any occasion, but it's especially popular during the spring and summer months when fresh, ripe strawberries are abundant.

The richness and buttery flavor of Kate's Butter perfectly complement the sweetness of the strawberries and the smoothness of the cream. With this simple addition, you can take your strawberry shortcake to the next level and create a dessert that your friends and family will remember for years to come.
