  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • Tbsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 8 Tbsp cold unsalted butter cut into ½-inch pieces
  • 1 - 1½ cups heavy cream

Strawberry Sauce

  • 4 cups stemmed whole fresh California strawberries
  • 1 cup simple syrup

Whipped Cream Topping

  • ¾ cup heavy cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 Tbsp sugar

To Serve

  • 2 cups stemmed and sliced fresh California strawberries
  • Confectioner’s sugar
  • Mint chiffonade


To make Shortcake:

  • Sift flour, 2 tablespoons sugar, baking powder and salt into a bowl.
  • With a fork or pastry cutter, cut butter into flour mixture until large crumbles form.
  • Stir in 1 to 1½ cups cream (enough so that dough holds together and is soft but not sticky).
  • On a floured surface, knead dough lightly a few times to form a ball. Pat into a ½-inch-thick circle. Wrap in plastic wrap; refrigerate at least 15 minutes.
  • Heat oven to 400°F.
  • With a 2 in. round cutter, cut dough into 12 circles. Place on parchment-lined baking sheet; bake 15-20 minutes or until golden.

To make Strawberry Sauce:

  • In a saucepan, simmer 4 cups whole strawberries with simple syrup until jam-like consistency; cool.

To make Whipped Cream Topping:

  • Whip ¾ cup cream with vanilla and 1 tablespoon sugar until soft peaks form.

To serve:

  • Cut shortcakes in half horizontally. Place 3 shortcake bottoms on each of 4 plates. Top with strawberry sauce, whipped cream and sliced strawberries, dividing ingredients evenly.
  • Place tops on shortcakes; dust with confectioner’s sugar and sprinkle with mint.

Although the instructions say to add 1-1½ cup cream, it does not specify whipping, light or half and half not does it show in the ingredient list.

Great catch, Claire! We have the heavy whipping cream listed under the “Whipped Cream Topping” section, but it should be split between that and the “Shortcake” section. Making the edit now! Thanks for commenting.
