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: 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.

      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!)
