Tropical Strawberry Guava Shortcakes

Tropical Strawberry Guava Shortcakes

Strawberry shortcakes are one of my favorite summertime desserts because I just can’t get enough fresh strawberries when they’re in season. I typically chop them up and add them to a shortcake whole, with just a little bit of whipped cream to dress them up.
