TWD- Tender Shortcakes and Ballerina Cake

Ok, this week’s TWD was a little better than last week’s. A little.
I don’t know what it is, but I’m not a fan of shortbread, shortcakes, etc. “Moist” is not a word I associate with such “desserts,” if they may be called that. These little shortcakes were easy to make, they came together in just a few minutes. They are crumbly and weren’t bad with lots of berries and whipped cream. Perhaps someone can enlighten me on why, whenever I make something like this, there’s some kind of bitterness present? Anyone else have that happen?
Cathy has the recipe (and a great blog)!

    Okay – now I thoroughly loved these, but I thought I detected the slightest bitter aftertaste. It was so slight I essentially ignored it, but I think I know what you mean! I don't know what it is – the absence of (much) sugar? Baking powder? In any event, sorry they weren't a favorite (but glad they were better than last week's!!) Hopefully by the end of the month we'll have a homerun!! Your shortcake looks fabulous – thank you so much for baking along with me this week!!
