Strawberry Shortcake Horns Recipe


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! 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!
