Strawberry Shortcake Horns are a simple elegant twist to a classic summertime treat!
Summer is not summer without a classic Strawberry Shortcake to eat. I cranked it up a notch and flipped this classic into a delightful but somewhat elegant dessert by placing the main components into puff pastry horns!
I know what you are thinking, these are not your typical shortcakes. That’s okay, I am about to give you a little history and tell you where my take on this fantastic dessert came from, so stick around!
Strawberry Shortcakes originated somewhere around 1847, which is something I never knew! The cake part is originally a biscuit that derives from a European influence. The whipped cream used to be icing! Gosh this classic dessert has really changed over time!
I love that it did because I am such a fan of it! There is something about adding whipped cream and strawberries together that is a combination like no other!
Because I work with puff pastry a lot I am always looking and experiment with different types of recipes. One way to use puff pastry is to make horn like pastries and fill them with anything your heart desires.
I think cream horns are so simple and so pretty. Oh and they taste pretty good too. Nevertheless I was thinking of what to share with you this month and because summer is officially here, finally, I thought why not something with strawberries!
Now you know how I got to my process of making these Strawberry Shortcake Horns Recipe! Don’t let making the horns scare you off. It may take a few minutes of figuring out how to wrap the pastry around your foiled cone but once you do it a few times it is super simple. A word of advice as well, start from the bottom of your cone and not the top! I did that the first few times and then realized that the bottoms of my horns were opened and not tightly closed! Oops!
