I love this recipe in the summer when strawberries are at their peak. The shortcake is just a slightly sweetened biscuit that pairs well with the tart strawberries and some whipped heavy cream.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400º F.
  2. Cut strawberries in half and combine with 1/4 cup sugar. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl combine flour, baking powder, 3 tablespoons sugar, and salt. Add the cold butter pieces and use a pastry blender, fork, or your fingertips to combine until the mixture resembles a coarse meal. Add the cream a little at a time combining with a fork.
  4. Place dough on a floured work surface and knead gently just until the dough is not sticky.
  5. Roll the dough out 1/2 thick and cut with a 3 inch cutter.
  6. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes until lightly golden. Cool slightly.
  7. Split biscuits and top with strawberries and whipped cream.
