Limoncello Shortcakes
We've spotted shortcakes drizzled with the Italian liqueur on restaurant menus and seen recipes for versions that include homemade biscuits, but Heather "Cupcakes" Saffer, author of The Dollop Book of Frosting and winner of Food Network's Cupcake Wars, puts a semihomemade spin on the dessert that we haven't seen before. She does make her own strawberry frosting (it's hard to beat the sweet-tart flavor of fresh berries), but relies on a roll of refrigerated buttermilk biscuits for the dessert's base. They're just as absorbent as ones made from scratch, so they beautifully soak up the zingy limoncello.
