"Wow!" is what people say when I set this dessert on the table. It's fun to serve since it's attractive, not overly sweet and bursting with the wondrous flavor of field-fresh strawberries. -Renee Bisch, Wellesley, Ontario

Ingredients

  • 4 cups fresh strawberries, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • SHORTCAKE:
  • 1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup cold butter, cubed
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 3/4 cup sour cream
  • WHIPPED CREAM:
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

Preheat oven to 425°. Toss strawberries with sugar; let stand, allowing juices from berries to release.
For shortcake, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt; cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. In another bowl, whisk together egg and sour cream. Add to flour mixture; stir just until moistened.
On a lightly floured surface, gently knead dough 8-10 times. Transfer to a lightly greased baking sheet; roll or pat to a 7-1/2-in. circle. Bake until golden brown, 13-17 minutes. Remove to a wire rack; cool completely.
In a bowl, beat cream until it begins to thicken. Add sugar and vanilla; beat until stiff peaks form.
Using a long serrated knife, cut shortcake horizontally in half. Spoon half of the strawberries (including juices) over top; spread with half of the whipped cream. Add top of shortcake; layer with the remaining whipped cream and berries. Yield: 8 servings.

"By far my favorite strawberry shortcake recipe. I have used it regularly ever since its original publication in '96 . . . eight years now! However, I do usually bake and serve it in individual biscuit-sized portions."
