Strawberry Lemon Shortcake

The fresh citrus in this strawberry shortcake brings out the bold and zesty flavor that you won’t be able to get enough of.

Ingredients 

  • 1 1/2 Cups Fresh Strawberries, sliced
  • 2 Tablespoons Sugar

SHORTCAKE:

  • 1 Cup All-Purpose Flour
  • 2 Tablespoons White Sugar
  • 3/4 Teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1/8 Teaspoon Salt
  • 2 Tablespoons Cold Butter
  • 3 Tablespoons Whole Milk
  • 1 Egg Yolk, beaten
  • 3/4 Teaspoon Grated Lemon Peel

LEMON BUTTER:

  • 1 Tablespoon Butter, softened
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Grated Lemon Peel

WHIPPED CREAM:

  • 1/3 Cup Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 1 Teaspoon Sugar

Preparation:

      1. Combine the strawberries and sugar in a small bowl.
      2. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until serving.
      3. Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a small bowl.
      4. Cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
      5. Combine the milk, egg yolk and lemon peel.
      6. Stir into the crumb mixture until a soft dough forms.
      7. Turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead 10 times.
      8. Divide the dough in half.
      9. Gently pat or roll each half into a 3/4-in.-thick circle.
      10. Place 2 inches apart on an ungreased baking sheet.
      11. Bake at 400 degrees F for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown.
      12. Remove to a wire rack and let cool for 15 minutes.
      13. Combine the butter and lemon peel in a small bowl.
      14. Set aside.
      15. Beat the whipping cream until it begins to thicken in a small mixing bowl.
      16. Add the sugar and beat until a stiff peak forms.
      17. To assemble, split the shortcakes in half.
      18. Place the cake bottoms on dessert plates.
      19. Spread each with lemon butter.
      20. Top each with a fourth of the strawberries and whipped cream.
      21. Cover with shortcake top and remaining berries and cream.

    Cooking Tip – Time Saving Tip

    If you are in a quick hurry then you can just purchase the frozen whipping cream or the whipped cream in a bottle and substitute for actually making your own homemade whipped cream.

    Cooking Tip – Recipe Idea

    You don’t just have to stick with strawberries. Try any other berry or any other fresh ripe fruit for that matter. They all taste great.
