Strawberry shortcakes are a summertime favorite. We put a fun new spin on this classic recipe by preparing it with our SlidePiece pretzel mini buns. It's a treat we like to call Strawberry Pretzel Cakes!
Add strawberries and 2 tablespoons of sugar in a large bowl and stir to coat strawberries
Cover and let it sit in the refrigerator until ready to use! This will bring out those delicious strawberry juices
Cut pretzels in half and brush the tops with 1 tablespoon melted butter.
Sprinkle with maple chunks and bake for 4-6 minutes starting from thawed
Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 3 minutes before assembling
Using a hand or stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, beat the heavy cream, 2 tablespoons of granulated sugar, and vanilla extract on medium-high speed until soft-medium peaks form (about 3 minutes)
Take the bottoms of your baked and cooled pretzels and place on a tray
First add your whipped cream, topped with the mixture of strawberries followed by another layer of whipped cream, then add the tops of the pretzels and a little more whip cream for fun!
