Strawberry Shortcake Recipe

Updated on February 15, 2013
4.7 stars from 3 ratings of Strawberry Shortcake

As I've gotten older, I've realized how much of a sweet tooth that I have. I've realized that my favorite dessert out of pies, cookies, brownies, and shortcake was ultimately the shortcake. The shortcake that I like the best is the strawberry shortcake. I feel that the warm flaky biscuits and strawberries mix really well with the cream. The combination of the two flavors gives your taste buds a smooth and sweet taste. Here below is a quick and easy recipe to make strawberry shortcake:

Cook Time

Prep time: 20 min
Cook time: 20 min
Ready in: 40 min
Yields: Serves Eight

Ingredients

  • 6 cups strawberries, rinsed, quartered
  • 1 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoon sugar
  • 3 cups flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 stick butter, unsalted , small pieces
  • 2 cups cream, heavy
  • 2 eggs, large
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a bowl, toss strawberries with 3/4 cup of sugar. Let this sit to bring out the juices.
  2. In a food processor, pulse flour, baking powder, 1/2 cup sugar, and salt. Add butter and pulse until mixture resembles coarse meal. (10-12 times) In another bowl, whisk 1/2 cup of cream and eggs, pour over flour mixture and pulse until large clumps form (25-30 times)
  3. Pack dough into 1/2 cup measuring cup and tap onto baking sheet. Repeat to make 8 biscuits. Bake about 20 minutes or until lightly golden. Transfer to rack to cool for about 15 mins.
  4. Beat remaining 1 1/2 cup of cream and 2 tablespoons of sugar with the vanilla.
  5. Slice biscuits in half. Spoon strawberries and their liquid over both halves. Spoon whipped cream on strawberries and replace top halves of biscuits.

      @WillStarr thanks for stopping by and im glad this recipe reminded you of the one your mom use to make. Thanks for the suggest about Bisquick (:

      This is a super-sounding recipe, and my mother used to make very similar shortcake.

      If you want to cheat, Bisquick has a shortcake recipe on the box (but this sounds far better!)
