They are very sour but super yummy!
I made the Lime Shortcakes by using the same recipe I used for my Strawberry Shortcakes. If you want a shortcut, Bisquik has a recipe on the box for shortcakes that are easy to make.
I used the zest and juice of 4 limes. I took 3 more limes and with a paring knife, sliced the membrane out and arranged it on the bottom of the cake. (picture below)
Then, after I whipped my cream, omitting the vanilla, I slowly added about 1/4 cup of lime juice and a few pinches of zest. You can make another shortcut by using Cool Whip and just add the lime juice to the thawed whip.
On top of my bed of limes, I put a dollop of lime whipped cream, put the top of the cake on, topped it with the cream and sprinkled lime zest.
It was a hit! ~ Janet
