After buying a huge flat of strawberries, I realized that I need to find a few ways to use them up. These shortcakes are so delicious, you will never want store bought ones again!

Yield: 10-12 shortcakes

Ingredients:

  • Shortcakes:
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 stick butter, cut into 1/2 in. pieces
  • 2/3-3/4 cup half and half (or milk)
  • Strawberries:
  • 4 lb strawberries, cut into slices
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar
  • whipped cream, optional

Steps:

  1. Wash strawberries. Remove tops, slice, and place in a large bowl. Add powdered sugar and combine well. Set aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  3. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Combine well.
  4. Add butter cubes to flour mixture and combine with a pastry cutter (or pulse in a food processor). Only tiny pieces of butter should remain.
  5. Ad

  6. Create a well in the middle of the flour mixture, then add 2/3 cup half and half. Combine with a fork until moist. Add a little more if necessary. Dough may not hold together yet. Let stand for a few minutes.
  7. Turn dough out onto a floured surface. Knead 2-3 times, until dough holds together and is no longer sticky.
  8. Ad

  9. Pat the dough out until it is about 3/4 in. thick. Using a round cookie cutter, cut out as many shortcakes as possible. Recombine dough pieces, pat flat, and cut out as many as possible.
  10. Place shortcakes onto a greased cookie sheet. Using your fingers brush tops with half and half, then sprinkle with sugar.
  11. Ad

  12. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until shortcakes have risen and are golden brown. Cool on a wire rack.
  13. While still warm, split the shortcakes in half using a knife. Place strawberry slices on the bottom half, followed by whipped cream. Place the top back on and add another layer of strawberries and whipped cream. Enjoy!

Fix strawberries just like you would for strawberry shortcake. Crush or break-up ritz crackers (this substitutes for the shortcake). . .

I recently read a recipe for strawberry shortcake using sour cream in the cake or biscuit part. I can't seem to remember where I read it. Does any one have a recipe similar?

Joanne - I think the recipe you are referring was in the latest issuue of Food and Family - the free magazine that Kraftfoods, sends out. I just read it last night. The recipe is called Simply Sensational Strawberry Shortcake. If you don't have the magazine, the recipe can be found at www.kraftfoods.com. Just type in Strawberry Shortcake under "Recipe Search." Its the first listing.
I know, it sounds good, doesn't it?

I just add it to biscuit mix or a biscuit recipe instead of part of the milk. I'm always fooling with biscuit recipes and adding cream, sour cream or butter make richer biscuits. Also more fattening but nice for a dessert or special occasion.
