Strawberry shortcake is a summer classic.  Fresh fruit, sweet little cakes, and whipped cream.  Simple, and not to be messed with, right?

Wrong. 

You need to try making it with ROASTED berries! 

The roasting brings out a different sweetness to the berries, more reminiscent of a HOMEMADE berry pie.  Not that thick, gloopy, overly sugared canned pie filling used in grocery store pies.  The balsamic adds the touch of acidity that the berries actually lose when roasted, and the results are amazing. 

Roasted Strawberry Shortcake
1 16oz package strawberries OR a 3 smaller (6 oz) packages of berries like blackberries, raspberries, or blueberries
3-4 good Balsamic Vinegar
2 T Honey
Few Tablespoons Strawberry Jam (optional)
Shortcake Dessert Shells (or rilled biscuits, or croissants, warmed in the oven)
Whipped Cream, or non-dairy whipped topping

Preheat the oven to 400.  Like a baking pan that has a lip at least 1/2" high, with foil. 

If using strawberries, chop them into quarters or sixths.  If using smaller berries, leave them whole.  Place all your berries on your baking sheet, clustered together, and lightly drizzle with your balsamic and the honey.  (I used about 2 T honey, and 3-4 T balsamic.)



Place in the oven, and roast 10 minutes.  Take out and stir, making sure all the berries get coated with a bit of the liquid.  Roast an additional 10-20 minutes, checking on them every few minutes.  You want softened berries that are clearly cooked through, and you want the liquid to have thickened a bit to a syrupy consistancy. 



Remove from the oven, and pour into a bowl.  If you wish to add a bit of jam, do so now.  (I had a bit of homemade to use up!) 

Place a cake or biscuit in the bottom of a bowl, top with the berries & juice, and some whipped topping.  You're welcome!  Cheesy
