I’m not sure there’s anything more summery than strawberry shortcake.

Well, food wise. Spending the evening at a ball game (the Angels are severely struggling, but I’m predicting a major comeback!) or at a summer concert (the Goo Goo Dolls + the Greek Theatre = AMAZING–it was my second time seeing them live and both times they DID NOT disappoint) screams summer to me. Pair either of those with these adorable jarred shortcakes and you’ve got yourself some sweet, sweet summer lovin’ a la Grease.

And let me tell you, these little shortcakes are a total blast. Little Mason Jar Strawberry Shortcakes, you’re the one that I want. #oohoohooh

These were made for my nephew’s 2nd birthday party, and since it was at a park, these were the perfect choice since they could travel easily in an ice chest. They live near the beach, so the weather was perfect, despite it being a July afternoon, and my nephew, well, he’s pretty much the cutest thing ever, so the day was so, so fun.

Last year, for his first birthday, I made these pirate treasure chest-inspired cupcakes, which if I do say so myself, were pretty tasty. We all know how much I love over-the-top desserts (get ready for a chocolate chip cookie cheesecake cake that’s going to be out of control), but there are times when there’s nothing like a classic dessert, like the aforementioned cupcakes and these strawberry shortcakes.

Ingredients

    Shortcakes
  • 1/3 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • Garnish
  • 2 cups sliced strawberries
  • Whipped Cream
  • Tools
  • 12 1-pint (16 oz) wide mouth canning mason jars (feel free to use any size mason jars, this is just the size in the pictures)
  • Biscuit Cutter (to fit the above jars, I used a 2 1/2" circular biscuit cutter)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a half sheet pan with baking spray. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, beat butter until light and fluffy, about 1 minute. Add in sugar and cream until combined. Add in egg and vanilla extract; mix.
  3. In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, and salt. Alternately, add in flour and milk to the butter mixture, beginning and ending with flour. Once combined, add in sour cream; mix.
  4. Spread the batter evenly in the half sheet pan (the batter will be thick, but it will spread in an even, thin layer).
  5. Bake for 16-17 minutes, or until a cake tester comes out clean. Allow to cool.
  6. Using a biscuit cutter (or something circular in diameter) cut out 24 shortcake rounds.
  7. Place one piece of cake in each jar and top each with strawberries. Place the remaining 12 cake rounds on top of the strawberries and top each with remaining strawberries.
  8. When ready to serve, top with whipped cream.
  9. Enjoy!
