Strawberry Shortcake image

There's a kind of magic in a summer recipe that you can make wherever you are, provided that wherever you are has, say, flour, butter, an oven and whatever fruit is most glorious is at that very moment. This is one such recipe, so simple that you can decide that you're having shortcake for dessert and make it so within the hour, and so satisfying that it may become your go-to for summer, the recipe you keep in your back pocket. Strawberries are the classic choice, but this would also be heavenly in high summer with very ripe peaches or any other juicy, macerated fruit.

Time 45m

Yield 4 generous servings

Number Of Ingredients: 9

2 pints ripe, well-rinsed strawberries
1/2 cup sugar, or more to taste
4 cups flour
3 tablespoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
5 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/4 cups butter
3 cups whipping cream
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Pick over and hull strawberries. Cut in half or slice, depending on size. Gently crush about a quarter of the berries with a fork to release their juices. Mix with remaining berries and the 1/2 cup of sugar, adding more sugar if necessary. Set aside, covered, for about half an hour to develop flavor.
  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  • Into a large mixing bowl, sift together flour, 3 tablespoons sugar, salt and baking powder. Add 3/4 cup of softened butter, and rub into dry ingredients as for pastry. Add 1 1/4 cups cream, and mix to a soft dough. Knead the dough for one minute on a lightly floured pastry board, then roll it out to about 1/2-inch thickness. Using a 3-inch biscuit cutter, cut an even number of rounds - 2 rounds per serving.
  • Use a little of the butter to grease a baking sheet. Place half the rounds on it. Melt remaining butter and brush a little on the rounds; place remaining rounds on top. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes, or until golden brown.
  • Remove from the oven, and pull shortcakes apart. Brush the insides with some of the remaining melted butter.
  • Beat remaining cream until it thickens. Add vanilla. Beat again just until thick.
  • Place a bottom half of a shortcake on each plate. Top with a generous spoonful of berries. Cover with a top half, add a few more berries, and top with whipped cream. Serve immediately.

Yield Serves 6 to 8

Number Of Ingredients: 12

2 pints fresh strawberries, rinsed and hulled
Juice of 1 lemon
1/4 cup sugar
3 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 tablespoon plus 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
9 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
1 1/4 cups plus 1 tablespoon heavy cream
2 large eggs
6 tablespoons coarse sanding sugar
1/2 cup cold heavy cream


  • Prepare the berries: Toss the strawberries with lemon juice and sugar to combine. Let macerate at room temperature for 1 hour.
  • Make the biscuits: Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Whisk to combine flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, and salt. Using a pastry blender or two knives, cut the butter into the flour mixture until mixture resembles coarse meal. Mix together 1 1/4 cups heavy cream and 1 egg. Add to flour mixture and stir with a fork just until dough starts to come together but is still crumbly.
  • Turn out dough onto a lightly floured surface and pat into a 6-by-9-inch rectangle, about 2 inches thick. With a short side facing you, fold the bottom third up as you would a business letter, followed by the remaining third. Pat into a square. With a 2 1/2-inch round cutter dipped in flour, cut biscuits from dough and place them, evenly spaced, on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Gather dough scraps together, fold once, and gently pat into a square. Cut out remaining biscuits. Whisk remaining egg and 1 tablespoon cream, then brush egg wash over tops of dough rounds. Sprinkle each with 1 tablespoon sanding sugar.
  • Bake until tops are golden brown brown, rotating sheet halfway through, about 25 minutes. Transfer biscuits to a wire rack and let cool slightly.
  • When ready to serve, whip cream in a chilled bowl until soft peaks form. Split biscuits in half and place a bottom half on each plate. Top generously with berries and their juice, then top with dollops of whipped cream followed by remaining biscuit halves. Scatter a few more strawberries on top and around plates.


The Best Classic Strawberry Shortcake image

For our simple and iconic shortcake, we discovered a great double-stacking technique that creates super light and high biscuits that are easy to split. This makes them easy to fill without crumbling. A simple recipe like this one allows its ingredients to shine, so use the very best berries you can find.

Time 50m

Yield 6 servings

Number Of Ingredients: 13

1 cup heavy cream, plus more for brushing
2 tablespoons sour cream
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting (see Cook's Note)
1/3 cup granulated sugar, plus more for sprinkling
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 stick (8 tablespoons) unsalted butter, cut into 1-inch cubes and frozen
1 pound strawberries, hulled and sliced
1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1 cup heavy cream
2 tablespoons sour cream
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract


  • For the shortcakes: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Whisk the heavy cream, sour cream and vanilla in a small bowl; refrigerate until ready to use. Pulse the flour, granulated sugar, baking powder and salt in a food processor until combined. Add the butter; pulse until the mixture looks like fine meal. Pour in the chilled heavy cream mixture and pulse until just combined.
  • Lightly flour a work surface and dump the dough onto it. Pat out the dough 1/2-inch thick. Cut out as many biscuits as you can with a 2 1/2-inch biscuit cutter. Then pat the remaining dough out to 1/2-inch thick again. Cut more biscuits; you should get 12.
  • Put 6 of the biscuits on the prepared baking sheet. Brush the tops generously with cream, then top each cream-brushed biscuit with one of the remaining biscuit rounds. (This makes it easier to split once they are baked.) Brush the top of each biscuit stack with more heavy cream and sprinkle 1 teaspoon granulated sugar on each biscuit.
  • Bake the biscuits until golden and puffed, about 30 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack and cool completely.
  • Meanwhile, for the topping: Toss the strawberries and 2 tablespoons of the brown sugar in a medium bowl.
  • Just before serving, beat the heavy cream, sour cream, the remaining 2 tablespoons brown sugar and vanilla in a large bowl with a mixer on medium-high speed until soft peaks form, about 2 minutes.
  • Split the shortcakes in half. Spoon half the cream on the bottom of the biscuits, top evenly with the strawberries and top with the remaining cream. Put each biscuit top on and serve.
