Smart Cookie Strawberry Shortcake

Elise shows us the secrets to making the most delightfully sweet strawberry shortcake! Start by macerating the strawberries - that is, letting them soak up a mixture of sugar, lemon juice, and zest. While the strawberries do their thing, you'll prepare the shortcakes. Like biscuits and scones, they involve cutting butter into a simple flour-baking powder mixture and adding a little dairy - heavy cream in this case - as you gently bind it all together. You'll want to handle the dough as little as possible, even while cutting it, to ensure the fluffiest layers as they rise in the oven. It takes a mere 10 minutes, so take this time to send out the third and final element: a 3-ingredient whipped cream, jazzed up with vanilla bean paste if desired. After the shortcakes have cooled, they're ready to split and meet their strawberries 'n cream dream team! Get the recipe for Smart Cookie Strawberry Shortcakes
