STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE

Strawberry Shortcake
Prep: 15 minutes
Cook: 25 minutes
Total Prep: 40 minutes
Serves 8-9

Ingredients:

6 cups fresh strawberries, sliced
1/2 cup sugar + 3 tablespoons
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tablespoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup unsalted butter, cubed
1 cup milk
1/4 cup heavy cream
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
16 ounces whipped cream

Instructions:

Placed sliced strawberries in a bowl with 1/2 cup of sugar.

In a large bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Cut in the butter until dough forms small pea-sized pieces. Add milk, cream, and vanilla. Stir until just blended.

Heat oven to 425°F. Drop large spoonfuls of dough onto a baking sheet about 2 inches apart. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes until the shortcakes are golden brown.

Let cool slightly. Place each shortcake onto a serving plate. Slice the top off of each shortcake, dividing the cake in half. Place spoonfuls of strawberries on the bottom layer and top with whipped cream. Add the second layer of shortcake and top with remaining strawberries. Add a final dollop of whipped cream and serve.
