Tuesdays With Dorie – Devilish Shortcakes

by Jessica on November 30, 2010

Devilish Shortcakes

After all of last week’s cooking and baking, this was definitely a welcome TWD recipe. Not very involved, a handful of ingredients and just a few dishes to clean… talk about my kind of dessert! I halved the recipe so I didn’t have too many hanging around (which was a good thing because I almost made two of them for myself!). Topped with a little raspberry coulis and sweetened whipped cream, these were crazy-good. They’d make for a lovely little breakfast or brunch… even for a wedding or baby shower! Serve them up buffet-style with toppings for everyone to enjoy!

Wow. The red raspberry coulis really makes the dish pop with the three contrasting colors! Nice photo!

You make these sound really good. I wasn’t too sure from the conversations on the blog.

I know what you mean – it’s nice to get an easy, no fuss recipe that you can make no sweat. I made these on a wrok night, so I was glad of it. Yours look lovely – the ruby red raspberry coulis makes a beautiful contrast to the dark chocolate shortcake.

Raspberries seem to be the fruit of choice for these. Yours look delicious. I made the whole recipe, but froze most of them, in dough form, right away. It will be nice in a few weeks to bring some out and bake them for a treat.

This not so sweet shortcake was a perfect foil for the sweet toppings you added.

You can never go wrong with raspberry and chocolate together. =P That was my combination as well, with a little chocolate sauce for good measure.
