You're probably asking "What are fleur spiced shortcakes!?" Well, I willTELL you!

They are shortcakes mixed with a flower-filled spice blend of pink pepper, hibiscus, lavender & rose made by Curio Spice Co's Fleur Spice from Boston General Store.

While this spice blend can be used in both sweet + savory dishes, strawberries are one of the recommended fruits to use, so I knew I had to do strawberry shortcakes. I decided to go with the classicbiscuit-style strawberry shortcakes that are portioned individually, because...biscuits. Theflaky, buttery biscuit and the sweet whipped cream compliment thefleur spiced strawberries perfectly.

Using a mortar & pestle I mixed cane sugar with the spice blend & ground it down to a very fine powder. I wanted the cane sugar to really be incorporated into thespice & for the strawberries to essentially marinate in the mix.

  • 1 tablespoon baking powder

  • for the fleur spice strawberries: place the sliced strawberries in a mixing bowl. using a mortar & pestle grind the sugar with the fleur spice. add the ground mixture to the strawberries & toss to coat. set aside while you make the whipped cream & let the strawberries soak in the flavors.
