citrus shortcake was amazing and followed the recipe exactly. I didn't have the time to follow this recipe exactly but my version was super easy, extremely tasty and the kids and hubby loved it. I used 1/4 c of vanilla superyogurt (Wegmans) + 1 T honey and stirred. Served with diced peaches to the kids (6 & 3). For hubby and I, I added 1 tsp. of Grand Marnier (orange liquor) to the yogurt/honey mixture and served with peaches. Fantastic!!
