My dad broke his leg 2 weeks ago so since then I have been spending a lot of time at home with him so I decided to make him some strawberry shortcake because we had an abundance of strawberries in the fridge.
This is after his surgery
Any ways back to the recipe, this recipe makes 8 servings
1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup cold butter cut into 1/2 inch pieces
1 large egg
1/2 cup heavy cream plus extra for brushing
2 tablespoons raw sugar
4 cups strawberries hulled and sliced
3 tablespoons sugar
Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a food possessor and pulse 2 or 3 times.
Add the butter and pulse 4 more times. Mix the cream and egg together in a small bowl and pour into food processor. Pulse 3 times, if the dough is not very soft add cream 1 splash at a time and pulse until it becomes a soft dough.
While the shortcakes are in the oven prepare the filling. In a bowl using a fork crush 1 cup of the berries.
Add crushed berries to the rest of the sliced straw berries. Add the sugar.
To serve, cut the shortcakes in half horizontally. Spoon the strawberries and whipped cream onto the bottom half and place top half as you probably already know on top.
