DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  • In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, combine 4 cups of flour, 2 tablespoons sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  • Blend in the cold butter at the lowest speed and mix until the butter is in pea-sized pieces.
  • Combine the eggs and heavy cream and quickly add them to the flour and butter mixture. Combine until just blended.
  • Toss the strawberries with 1 tablespoon of flour, add them to the dough, and mix quickly.
  • The dough may be a bit sticky.
  • Dump the dough out onto a well-floured surface and be sure it is well combined. Flour your hands and a rolling pin and roll the dough 3/4-inch thick.
  • You should see lumps of butter in the dough. Cut into squares with a 4-inch plain or fluted cutter, and then cut them in half diagonally to make triangles.
  • Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  • Brush the tops with egg wash.
  • Sprinkle with sugar and bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until the outsides are crisp and the insides are fully baked.
