Ingredients

  • 2 cups fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cold and cubed
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar

Instructions

  1. Mix the sliced strawberries with 1/4 cup of granulated sugar in a bowl. Let them macerate for about 30 minutes to release their juices.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, 1/4 cup of sugar, baking powder, and salt. Cut in the cold, cubed butter using a pastry cutter or your fingers until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  3. Slowly add the milk and vanilla extract to the flour mixture, stirring just until combined and a dough forms.
  4. Turn the dough onto a floured surface and gently knead it a few times. Pat the dough into a 1-inch thick round. Use a biscuit cutter to cut out shortcakes and place them on a baking sheet.
  5. Bake in a preheated oven at 425°F (220°C) for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Allow them to cool slightly.
  6. While the shortcakes are baking, whip the heavy cream with powdered sugar until stiff peaks form.
  7. To assemble, slice the shortcakes in half horizontally. Spoon the macerated strawberries over the bottom halves. Top with a dollop of whipped cream and then place the other half of the shortcake on top.
  8. Garnish with additional whipped cream and a strawberry on top. Serve and enjoy!
