Step-by-step Instructions:

Prepare the Strawberries:

  • In a large bowl, mix the sliced strawberries with the sugar.
  • Let them sit for at least 30 minutes to macerate, allowing the juices to come out.

Make the Shortcake:

  • Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C).
  • In a mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  • Add the cold, diced butter and use a pastry cutter or your fingertips to work the butter into the dry ingredients until the mixture looks like coarse crumbs.
  • Pour in the milk or heavy cream and vanilla extract. Mix until just combined.
  • On a lightly floured surface, knead the dough a few times, then roll or pat out to about 3/4-inch thickness.
  • Use a round cutter to cut out the biscuits.
  • Place them on a baking sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes or until lightly golden.

Whip the Cream:

  • In a mixing bowl, beat the heavy whipping cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla until soft peaks form.

Assemble the Shortcakes:

  • Slice each biscuit in half horizontally.
  • Spoon some of the strawberries along with their juice onto the bottom half.
  • Top with a dollop of whipped cream.
  • Place the other half of the biscuit on top. Add more whipped cream and strawberries if desired.
