Recipe from Bites: Strawberry Shortcakes

by Jessie on May 17, 2012

We’ve had a few days of sun this week and I’ve got summer on the brain!  My sister and I are in the process of making a summer ‘bucket list’ and I’ve got “make homemade strawberry shortcake” near the top!  This recipe calls for shortcake squares but I like making rounds.

Ingredients:

3 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup white sugar
4 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 cup butter
2/3 cup heavy whipping cream
1 egg, beaten
3 cups sliced fresh strawberries
3 tablespoons white sugar

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

In a large bowl, mix flour, 1/4 cup sugar, baking powder and cream of tartar. Cut in butter with pastry blender or two knives. Stir in cream and egg. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead 2 minutes. Press into a half-inch thick sheet. Cut into squares. Place on baking sheets.

Bake in preheated oven 20 minutes, or until golden. Sprinkle 3 tablespoons sugar over sliced berries.

Let shortcakes cool before splitting and filling with sugared berries.
