Yield: Serves 4

  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 cup heavy cream

In a large bowl, sift together the dry ingredients and mix in the butter.

Fold in the cream.

On a lightly-floured surface, divide the dough into 4 pieces, and pat into 1-inch-thick rounds.

Bake on an ungreased baking sheet for 35 minutes, until golden.


Hull and slice the strawberries, mix with sugar.

Split the shortcakes and spoon the filling onto the bottom half.

Replace the tops and serve with whipped cream.

    Do yourself a favor and SKIP this recipe. The outcome did not produce a good shortcake nor a good biscuit. Ultimately it was on the salty side and for a shortcake it should be sweet. This recipe needs some major tweaking...also the shortcakes were on the dry side and tasted way too much like butter. So eventhough it looks tempting to try b/c it seems like an easy recipe, the disasterous outcome is not worth the effort, your effort.
