Old-Fashioned Strawberry Shortcakes

Old-Fashioned Strawberry Shortcakes

 

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 stick butter, chilled
  • 2/3 to 3/4 cup half and half, milk, or cream
  • Strawberries, sliced mashed and sweetened to taste
  • Whipped cream
Mix dry ingredients together in a medium bowl. Cut chilled butter into small pieces. Work butter into dry ingredients with your hands until it is a texture similar to corn meal, with a few pea size pieces of butter. Mix in milk, but do not over beat. Roll out onto a floured surface to 1/4 inch thickness and cut with a biscuit cutter. Bake at 425 degrees until slightly browned. Serve with strawberries and cream.
