Don’t you just love the flavors of summer? This berry lemon shortcake in mason jars is the perfect combination of summer flavors and patriotic cheer to celebrate the 4th of July this year!
Summer must be our favorite season for fresh produce. While we are definitely missing our garden and fresh berries this summer, we have had great access to fresh and local fruits and veggies at the farmer’s markets here in town. I do really miss having blueberries in our yard though. Luckily, between the farmer’s markets and Justin’s mom’s garden, we have plenty! They are the perfect topper for this fabulous dessert!
Aside from simply loving mason jars and trying to put just about everything and anything I can in them, this one was meant to be. I mean, it is basically perfect. With this berry lemon shortcake cut up into bite sized chunks and the strawberries baked right in, you get a bite with all of the goodies each and every time. No need to save the best bite for last (do you do that, too?!). Just dive right into this berry lemon shortcake and enjoy the best bite. Every. Single. Bite. Plus, you get a little red, white, and blue in each bite! Could you even be more patriotic!?
