So, this is the second new recipe I made for the flip flop party. I saw these on Pinterest (where else?) and, like the pancake pops last year, thought, "Of course I can do that!" They weren't as pretty as the Pinterest photo and a little messy to assemble, but I was happy with the end result and they were really tasty. And let's face it - everything is more fun on a stick! I can imagine these being fun for a tea party or a summer dessert in addition to serving them at brunch.
A couple of notes: I used the lollipop / cake pop sticks from Wilton instead of wooden skewers but I think either would be fine. I made the biscuit rounds the day before and sealed them in an airtight container and they were fine the next day.
Strawberry Shortcake Skewers (makes about 20)
from Karen in the Kitchen
2 cans of biscuit dough (I used both Pillsbury & Trader Joes)
1 egg white
2 cups heavy cream
1/2 jar marshmallow fluff
3 T sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. On a lightly floured surface, use a rolling pin to roll a biscuit into a 5 inch circles. Use a round cutter (mine was a biscuit cutter about 2 inches across) and cut out as many circles as you can get before re-rolling the dough (I set aside scraps until I had enough to make another circle).
Whisk together the egg white and water. Brush on each biscuit and sprinkle with a little sugar. Bake 10 minutes or until golden brown.
While the biscuits are baking, prepare the strawberries. Cut two 1/2 inch slices from each strawberry. I cut the top and bottom off and then cut the strawberry crosswise to make rounds.
Once the biscuits are baked, transfer to a cooling rack and cool completely before assembling the skewers.
For the cream, use a stand mixer with a whisk attachment and combine the heavy cream and sugar and beat until firm peaks form. Add half a jar of marshmallow fluff until just combined.
Assemble the skewers - I put a biscuit, cream, strawberry, cream, strawberry, cream, and another biscuit on top like the photo above. You could do more biscuit layers (every other) but I didn't have enough to make as many skewers as I wanted to.
Serve right away. Mine lasted a couple of hours on the counter before getting soggy / runny.
