This valentines Day, I am reminded of a simply decadent dessert my great grandma Ida would prepare, strawberries & cream.

Have you ever tried Lorna Doone shortbread cookies? Every time I pass them in the supermarket, my mind is brought back to my childhood.

Grandma would sprinkle sliced strawberries with a bit of sugar, letting them macerate in a cold icebox to develop a sweet sauce.

Start by with a layer of buttery Lorna Doone shortbread cookies. Any shortbread cookies will work… even those legendary Girl Scout cookies!

An old fashioned treat that is rich and decadent to share with your loved ones this Valentines Day.

Enjoy!
