    Ingredients

    • 2 quarts fresh strawberries – cleaned and halved
    • 1 pint heavy cream or whipping cream
    • For the Shortcake:
    • To make a bigger stack of shortcakes double this recipe. (I did)
    • 2 cups all-purpose flour - sifted
    • 1 tablespoon baking powder
    • 4 tablespoons butter
    • ¾ cups light cream or buttermilk
    • 4 – 5 tablespoons sugar

    Directions

    1. Preheat Oven 350 degrees:
    2. Sift flour, baking powder and sugar into a bowl. Cut in the butter. Work the batter with your fingers. Add the cream or buttermilk and stir gently and quickly until dough is formed.
    3. Flour a surface and knead the dough gently until no creases are left.
    4. Roll out the dough to about ½ inch thickness. Place on parchment paper or a buttered cookie sheet.
    5. Bake about 20-25 minutes - until slightly golden.
    6. Let cool, then cut the biscuits in half through the center; making a top and bottom half.
    7. Whip the cream with a tablespoon of powdered sugar.
    8. Sandwich the strawberries and whip cream between the layers of biscuit to build your cake.
