4 shortcakes


  • 2 ½ cups sliced fresh strawberries, divided

  • ½ cup water

  • 3 tablespoons white sugar

  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch

  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice

  • 1 (8 ounce) package refrigerated crescent roll dough (such as Pillsbury®

  • 2 teaspoons heavy whipping cream

  • 2 teaspoons white sugar

  • 2 cups whipped cream


  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. Place 1/2 cup strawberries and water in a food processor and process until smooth.

  3. Combine 3 tablespoons sugar and cornstarch in a saucepan. Add pureed strawberries. Cook and stir until strawberry sauce has thickened, about 5 minutes. Stir in remaining 2 cups sliced strawberries and lemon juice. Set aside.

  4. Unroll dough. Place 1 crescent atop another and roll up, starting at the smallest end, to make 4 double-rolled crescents. Brush each roll with 1/2 teaspoon heavy whipping cream and sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon sugar.

  5. Bake crescents until golden brown, 20 to 25 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool completely.

  6. Split each roll in half horizontally and fill with strawberries. Top with 1/2 cup whipped cream and the top half of the crescent roll. Top with more strawberries.

Cook's Notes:

Fresh croissants can be used in place of refrigerated crescents.

Swap out the strawberries for raspberries, blueberries, blackberries or any other berries.
