Strawberry Shortcake
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 5 tablespoons chilled unsalted butter
  • 1 cup whipping cream

Preheat oven to 400°. Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, and 1/2 teaspoon salt in large bowl. Add butter; rub in with fingertips until mixture resembles fine meal. Gradually add 1 cup cream, mixing until dough comes together. Form into 6 balls and pat to 1/2-inch thickness.  Bake shortcakes until brown, about 15-18 minutes.

I don’t split these. I just pile the strawberries on top and cover in more whipped cream.
