Strawberry Shortcake on a Stick

Lori Lange


  • 1 pound fresh strawberries
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cold and cut into small cubes
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Wooden skewers
  • Whipped cream, for serving


  1. Wash the strawberries and pat them dry. Remove the stems and cut them into bite-sized pieces. Set aside.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Mix well.
  3. Add the cold butter cubes to the dry mixture. Use a pastry cutter or your fingers to cut the butter into the flour until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  4. In a separate bowl, mix together the milk and vanilla extract. Pour the milk mixture into the flour mixture and stir until just combined. Do not overmix.
  5. Preheat a grill or griddle to medium heat.
  6. Take a small handful of the dough and shape it into a ball. Press a wooden skewer into the center of the dough ball, leaving about 2 inches of the skewer exposed. Repeat with the remaining dough.
  7. Place the dough skewers on the preheated grill or griddle and cook for about 2-3 minutes per side, or until golden brown and cooked through. Flip the skewers carefully using tongs.
  8. Remove the cooked dough skewers from the grill or griddle and let them cool slightly.
  9. To assemble the strawberry shortcake on a stick, alternate threading pieces of strawberry and cooked dough onto the skewers. Start and end with a strawberry piece.
  10. Serve the strawberry shortcake on a stick with a dollop of whipped cream on top.
  11. Enjoy these delightful and portable strawberry shortcakes as a fun and tasty treat for any summer gathering or outdoor event.

Note: You can customize this recipe by adding a drizzle of chocolate sauce or a sprinkle of powdered sugar over the assembled strawberry shortcake skewers for added flavor and presentation.
