Strawberry Shortcake

I had never tried Strawberry shortcake before, but looking through the recipe, I did not see how it could be bad!  I made this after Mel made her dinner, and it was AWESOME!  Super easy to make as well.  I also made homemade whipped cream to go along with it!


Start to finish: 45 minutes
  • 1-1/2  cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4  cup sugar
  • 1  teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4  teaspoon salt
  • 1/4  teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/3  cup cold butter
  • 1  egg, slightly beaten
  • 1/2  cup dairy sour cream
  • 2  tablespoons milk
  • 5  cups sliced strawberries
  • 3  tablespoons sugar
  • 1  recipe Whipped Cream
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly grease a baking sheet; set aside. In a medium bowl combine flour, the 1/4 cup sugar, the baking powder, salt, and baking soda. Using a pastry blender, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. In a small bowl combine egg, sour cream, and milk. Add to flour mixture, stirring with a fork just until moistened.
2. Drop dough into 8 mounds onto prepared baking sheet. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool.
3. Meanwhile, combine 4 cups of the strawberries and the 3 tablespoons sugar. Using a potato masher, mash berries slightly; set aside. To serve, split shortcakes in half; fill with strawberry mixture and whipped cream. Top with remaining sliced strawberries.
