Summertime Strawberry Shortcake
Thanks to Martha Doyle of Rome, New York, who shared this recipe with us. She writes, "For an extra quick & easy version, make one big shortcake! Pat dough into a greased 8" round cake pan and bake for 15 to 18 minutes."
3 to 4 c. strawberries, hulled
1/2 c. plus 2 T. sugar, divided
2 c. all-purpose flour
1 T. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
3/4 c. butter, divided
1 egg, beaten
2/3 c. light cream
1 c. whipping cream, whipped
Toss strawberries with 1/2 cup sugar and set aside. Combine flour, remaining sugar, baking powder and salt in a separate bowl. Cut in 1/2 cup butter until mixture forms coarse crumbs; set aside.
Whisk together egg and light cream; add to flour mixture, stirring just until moistened. Divide dough into 6 parts; pat into biscuits and place on a greased baking sheet. Bake at 450 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes, until golden.
Cool biscuits briefly on a wire rack. Split in half with a serrated knife; spread bottoms with remaining butter. Top with berries and whipped cream; add tops. Garnish with remaining berries and cream. Makes 6 servings.
