Citrus Shortcake Recipe

Citrus Shortcake Recipe

This classic dessert gets an update when fresh berries meet the convenience of prepared whipped topping, individual sponge cakes and other packaged items. It's fast and delicious when time is short. Sometimes I use scones instead of shortcakes.—Ron Gardner, Grand Haven, Michigan
