    Lawsome's Note:

    In place of shortcake or biscuits, this recipe uses chocolate biscuits. Very dense and rich! I believe the recipe came from Fine Cooking magazine.

      OUTSTANDING shortcakes! What better combo than strawberries & chocolate! This recipe was a joy to make, VERY ENJOYABLE! I ended up using 6 cups of sliced berries AND then, when it was all put together, I topped it off with a small amount of another Zaar recipe that I'd made yesterday ~ Bev's Lee Lee's Famous Chocolate Sauce for Ice Cream, Lee Lee's Famous Chocolate Sauce for Ice Cream! And who says you can't have a little bit of heaven on earth! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my invitees to the AUS/NZ Recipe Swap #14, Mar 08]
