Irresistible Strawberry Shortcake

If you’re craving a taste of summer, there’s nothing quite like an Irresistible Strawberry Shortcake. This classic dessert combines light and fluffy layers of sweet biscuit-like shortcake, fresh and juicy strawberries, and a generous dollop of whipped cream. It’s a timeless treat that never goes out of style.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cold and cubed
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups whipped cream

Instructions

  1. In a bowl, combine sliced strawberries and 1/4 cup of sugar. Let them sit for about 30 minutes to macerate and release their juices.
  2. Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C). In a mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, 1/4 cup of sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  3. Add the cold, cubed butter to the dry ingredients and use a pastry cutter or your fingers to work it into the mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs.
  4. Pour in the milk and vanilla extract, and stir until just combined. Do not overmix; the dough should be slightly lumpy.
  5. Drop spoonfuls of the dough onto a baking sheet, forming shortcakes. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until they are golden brown.
  6. To assemble, split the shortcakes in half. Spoon the macerated strawberries onto the bottom half, top with whipped cream, and then cover with the other half of the shortcake.
  7. Garnish with additional whipped cream and a fresh strawberry if desired.
