15 Minute Gourmet Strawberry Shortcake Croissants
I was getting ready to bake the base for my strawberry shortcake when I spied the bag of croissants on the counter... and the rest is history.
My family absolutely loved the change and asked me to prepare them like this from now on. Once plated, top with additional whipped cream and confectioners' sugar.
