Strawberries are not only delicious, but essential for mouthwatering summer desserts. These beautiful recipes include classic strawberry shortcake and strawberry cream puffs.

1. Strawberry Shortcake

Cake flour is the secret ingredient in this lusciously light shortcake. Make sure that you use pure cake flour as opposed to self-rising cake flour, which is similarly packaged. This dessert is at its best within 30 minutes of assembly.
