Balsamic Strawberry Shortcake with Basil Olive Oil Biscuits

Roasting strawberries in balsamic vinegar brings out their natural juices and intensifies their flavor. An olive oil biscuit soaks up the sweet/tart syrup while keeping a crispy exterior. Rich, sweet whipped cream or ice cream balances out the tartness of the berries. This is a gourmet strawberry shortcake, with Basil Olive Oil taking the foodie factor up an extra notch. If the basil/strawberry combination isn’t your style, try it instead with an Ultra Premium Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Blood Orange, Eureka Lemon, Persian Lime, or Butter Infused Olive Oil.

By using olive oil instead of butter and balsamic vinegar instead of sugar, we make a lower-calorie, lower-fat, lower-sugar dessert that’s high in flavor and wow-factor! You can even add a scoop (or two) of ice cream or whipped cream and not feel guilty.
