Preparation time: 20 minutes | Cooking Time: 15 minutes | Total Time: 35 minutes | Serves: 6


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup cold butter, cut into small pieces
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 pound fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar


  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F (220°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Cut in the butter using a pastry cutter or your fingers until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  3. Add the milk and vanilla extract to the flour mixture, stirring until just combined.
  4. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead gently a few times. Pat the dough into a 1-inch thick circle and use a round cutter to cut out biscuits.
  5. Place the biscuits on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool on a wire rack.
  6. In a medium bowl, toss the sliced strawberries with sugar and let sit for 10 minutes to macerate.
  7. In a separate bowl, beat the heavy cream and powdered sugar until stiff peaks form.
  8. To assemble the strawberry shortcakes, slice the biscuits in half horizontally. Top the bottom half with a spoonful of strawberries and whipped cream. Place the other half of the biscuit on top and top with more strawberries and whipped cream.
  9. Serve the strawberry shortcakes immediately and enjoy!
