Do-ahead Strawberry Shortcake

How far ahead of time can I make the shortcakes for the strawberry shortcake I'm serving this evening? If I can make them, say, six-eight hours ahead of time, how should they be kept in the interim? Thanks!

Yes, you can absolutely make them ahead of time. I'd let them cool completely, then let them sit in a cool place until you're ready to serve them. No need to cover them.

Thanks so much, Amanda! Since I am working today as, obviously, are you, this makes tonight's festivities that much easier.

I made some yesterday for a dinner party last night. I ended up heating up the biscuits at the last minute just to crisp the edges back up a bit. They were great!

Amanda and Helen, thank you! The shortcakes turned out fine and were a perfect punctuation to the evening!
