One of my favorite memories growing up was picking strawberries with my family at the local strawberry farm.

And afterwards, there really was nothing quite like snacking on a mouthwatering strawberry, freshly picked.

Whenever possible, our family would use this delicious fruit for one-of-a-kind recipes, like these strawberry and Nutella French toast roll-ups or yummy strawberry shortcake. But it never dawned on us to try to make a miniaturized version of shortcake!

In this exclusive video, you’ll see how you can make strawberry shortcake cupcakes right at home, either with fresh-picked strawberries, or fruit from your local market.

And with the weather starting to get warmer, there will be nothing quite like this light and fresh dessert to cap off any meal. I may just whip up a batch for my next barbecue!
