Ingredients

For shortcake:

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream plus more to make whipped cream

For serving:

  • 5 cups sliced strawberries
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • Whipped cream for topping

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425°F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silpat baking mat.
  • Whisk flour, baking powder, salt and sugar in a large bowl.
  • Add the heavy whipping cream and stir with a wooden spoon or spatula until the dough comes together. It should become a thick dough and if needed, use your hands to finish working it together.
  • Using two spoons, scoop out and drop biscuits on prepared cookie sheets. Depending on size, you’ll get about 8 biscuits, unless you want them smaller.
  • Bake for about 14-16 minutes, or until the tops and bottoms are golden brown and the biscuits are cooked through. I recommend rotating the pan halfway though baking for even cooking. Cool biscuits before serving.
  • While the biscuits are baking (or about 30 minutes before serving shortcakes), place the strawberries in a medium sized bowl and toss with sugar and lemon juice. The berries will become juicy as they sit.
  • For serving: cut each biscuit in half. Top bottom with some berries and some fresh whipped cream or whipped topping. Place the top of the biscuit back on top and serve.
