Strawberry shortcake hearts make a delicious Valentine's Day treat.

Individual heart-shaped desserts couldn’t be easier using refrigerated canned biscuits filled with fresh, sweetened strawberries and whipped cream.

Serves 8

  • 1 (16 oz.) can refrigerated biscuits (8 biscuits)
  • 1 lb. fresh strawberries
  • 2 Tbsp. sugar
  • Ready-made whipped cream or make your own (recipe below)

Slice strawberries and place in a bowl. Stir in sugar and let sit for 30 minutes until strawberries soften and juices are released.

Cuttting the dough.

Preheat oven to 350° F. While strawberries are softening, cut biscuit dough rounds into hearts by snipping a deep “V” into the top and forming the bottom into a point. Bake biscuits per package instructions.

Cut biscuits in half, spoon in strawberries and top with whipped cream (about 4 Tbsp.). Close biscuit and add more whipped cream on top along with strawberry garnish, if desired.

Homemade Whipped Cream (optional)

  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and use electric hand mixer to beat until stiff peaks form. Makes 2 cups.
