Micro-mini Strawberry Shortcakes Print E-mail

Kayla and Olivia's dad, Mr. Pete owns Seedling Fruit Farm in South Haven, Michigan. Seedling is an orchard with about 18 varieties of apples. They also raise a number of different types of berries.

Mr. Pete made up this fun recipe for micro-mini strawberry shortcakes that you can take anywhere with you - that's if they make it out of the kitchen!

Olivia from Seedling Fruit Farm is being helped in the kitchen today by her cousin, Anna S. Let's hear it for cousins!

{Makes 10-15 depending on the size of the strawberries }

You'll need:

  • A pint of strawberries
  • 2-3 graham crackers
  • Whipped cream in a can


  • A colander
  • A small knife
  • A zipper sandwich bag
  • A rolling pin
  1. Rinse the berries and let them drain.
  2. Break a graham cracker in two and slip it into the zipper bag. Close it securely.
  3. Use your fingers or a rolling pin to crush it until you have fine crumbs.
  4. Cut bottom off a strawberry so it will sit upright on the plate. Then cut the green top off the strawberry and hollow out the center. We found a grapefruit knife, with a slight curve at the tip, works best.
  5. Shake the can of whipped cream well.
  6. Squirt a little whipped cream into the top of the berry.
  7. Sprinkle some graham cracker crumbles on top.
  8. Take a bite. Yum!
