- 1 cup fresh strawberries, sliced
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
- 1/2 cup milk

- 1 cup whipped cream
- Start by preheating your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a muffin tin or use cupcake liners.

- Stir in the milk and vanilla extract until a dough forms.
- Divide the dough into equal portions and press each portion into the bottom and up the sides of the muffin cups, creating a cup shape.
- Bake in the preheated oven for 18-20 minutes or until the shortcake cups are golden brown and cooked through.
- Let the cups cool in the muffin tin for a few minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
- Once the shortcake cups are cool, fill each cup with the macerated strawberries and top with a dollop of whipped cream.
- Serve and enjoy your delightful strawberry shortcake cups!
