Description

Warm, sugar-topped biscuit with sweet strawberries and a mound of fresh whipped cream.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups All-purpose Bleached Flour
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • 1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
  • 12 Tablespoons Sugar (3 For Biscuits, 2 For Sprinkling, 6 For Berries, 1 For Cream)
  • 1 stick (8 Tablespoons) Frozen Butter
  • 1 whole Egg, Beaten
  • ½ cups Cold Half-and-Half
  • 1 package (16 Ounces) Strawberries, Thawed And Crushed
  • 12 ounces, weight Fresh Strawberries, Rinsed, Hulled, And Sliced
  • 1 cup Chilled Heavy Cream
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract

Preparation

Adjust oven rack to lower-middle position; heat oven to 425 degrees. Mix flour, salt, baking powder and 3 tablespoons sugar in a medium bowl. Grate frozen butter on the coarse holes of a box grater into dry ingredients; toss to coat.

Mix egg and half-and-half; pour into flour mixture. Toss with a fork to form large clumps. Lightly press clumps into a ball.

Turn dough onto work surface; press into a 7 1/2- by 5-inch rectangle. Cut into 6 squares, placing them 1 inch apart on a baking sheet. Sprinkle dough tops with 2 tablespoons sugar. Bake until golden brown, 12 to 14 minutes. Cool 5 minutes.

Mix frozen and fresh berries with 6 tablespoons sugar in a bowl.

Beat cream to soft peaks, gradually adding 1 tablespoon of sugar then vanilla.

Split each cake. Spoon a portion of berries over each cake bottom, then a dollop of whipped cream over berries. Cap with cake top and serve immediately.

My husband requested strawberry shortcake for his birthday and I came across this recipe. It was soooo easy! I liked the idea of freezing the butter and grating it, I thought that worked really well. I did put less sugar on the strawberries, but I don’t like mine overly sweet. My husband said that this was the best strawberry shortcake he has had in his 31 years and the biscuits were his favorite. I will definitely make this again!

These shortcakes are lovely! I made them last night for my sister and we both loved them. This recipe is great exactly as written.

My family loved these. I omitted the sugar on the top of a few of the shortcakes for my diabetic grandpa and he loved them. Thank you!

Very good! I had to add a little bit more half and half to get the dry ingredients to stick together, but this is my idea of a perfect shortcake. Dense, not overly sweet.
