Strawberry Shortcake

This is one of my favorite desserts! It is so fresh and tasty. All of the farmers markets have the best strawberries right now. I like my strawberry shortcake to have more of a biscuit for the bread. and I don't like it overly sweet, I like the fresh strawberries to give it the sweetness.


2 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup butter
3/4 cup milk or cream
1/4 cup yogurt
1 teaspoon vanilla
Sugar for sprinkling on top

Fresh Strawberries

1 cup whipping Cream
1 tablespoon sugar

Mix the flour, baking powder and salt together. Add the butter. Use your hands to mix this all together. You want it to look crumbly. Add milk, yogurt and vanilla. Mix it well. It should start to form a nice dough. If it is too sticky, add a little flour. Once combined place on a piece of floured parchment paper. Work the dough into a square.

It should be about an inch thick.

With a knife cut into 6 pieces. Try to cut straight down.

Brush each with a little butter and top with granular sugar. Bake at 450 for 12-15 minutes.

They will come out of the oven looking delicious! Now it's time to whip up some whip cream. I don't know why anyone would buy pre-made whip cream. It is so easy to make your own and it tastes a million times better. Simply pour some whip cream into a bowl and mix on high speed. Sprinkle in a little sugar. Keep whipping until it is nice and fluffy. taste and see if you need to add more sugar.

Chop up some strawberries and you are already to assemble.

I hope you enjoy this delicious summer treat. Also, since the biscuits aren't too sweet. I used the leftovers to make egg sandwiches for breakfast, talk about good.
