How to Make Easy Strawberry Shortcakes with Greek Yogurt

Shortbread is one of our favorites and Strawberry Shortbread Trifle is a favorite dessert of ours.  However, sometimes I don't need to make a big trifle so I like to make these cute little strawberry shortcakes.  I love to top them off with greek yogurt because it's delicious, simple and good for you too!  I then slice up some strawberries and mix them with a little bit of preserves to make them glisten for the perfect topping...simple to make and delicious to eat!
