The Best Strawberry Shortcake Recipe, Ever!

Feb 10, 2008
Cakes, cookies, and pies are just a few of the many desserts that are both known and loved. Many people can't say no to a sweet treat, but others feel the need to refuse desserts that they consider to be high in calories and sugar. This makes it hard to find a dessert recipe that pleases everyone.

However, strawberry shortcake recipes can do just that! Although they are relatively healthy compared to most other desserts, strawberry shortcake recipes are extremely delicious as well.

A Strawberry Shortcake Recipe

The first step in following a strawberry shortcake recipe is to make the filling. In order to make the filling, you will need:
* One-half teaspoon of organic vanilla extract
* One cup of organic heavy whipping cream
* Two tablespoons of organic sugar
* Four cups of sliced organic strawberries

First, combine the berries and sugar in a bowl and allow them to macerate in the refrigerator for several hours. In a separate bowl, whip the cream with the sugar and vanilla; cover and refrigerate.

The next part of the strawberry shortcake recipe involves making the shortcake portion of the dessert. The ingredients needed for this include:
* Two-thirds cup of organic cream or buttermilk
* Two cups of self-rising organic flour
* Eight tablespoons of unsalted organic butter
* One large organic egg
* Two tablespoons of organic sugar

First, preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Combine the sugar and flour in the bowl of a food processor and pulse several times.

Divide the butter into eight pieces and add to the mixture. Pulse approximately fifteen times to mix. Next, whisk together the egg and cream, add this to the mixture, and pulse once again. Place the dough in a pan and bake for fifteen to twenty minutes on the middle rack of the oven. Invert and allow to cool.

Next, you will need to assemble the strawberry shortcake. Split the shortcake in two and place one round on a platter. Place half of the berries and cream on top, and then add the second shortcake round. Top with the remaining berries and cream. Now it is time to serve and enjoy!

Shortcake Recipe For Success

You can't go wrong if you follow this strawberry shortcake recipe. Not only will you please the sugar-loving crowd, and the health crowd, but you will not be weighed down after you eat it like a lot of cakes and pies tend to do.
