Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  2. Toss strawberries with 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar in a bowl; set aside at room temperature for 1 hour for juice to form.
  3. Whisk flour, white sugar, baking powder, and sea salt in a bowl. Cut unsalted butter into flour mixture with a pastry cutter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Pour 1 cup cream into flour mixture, starting with 1/2 cup and adding a tablespoon or two at a time as needed. Stir to make a soft dough. Add more cream as needed. Place dough into a floured bowl and knead a few times with the heel of your hand.
  4. Roll dough out 1/2 inch thick on a floured surface; cut dough into 6 3-inch rounds using a biscuit cutter. Place onto ungreased baking sheet.
  5. Bake until tops are golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes. Cool on wire racks.
  6. Whip remaining 1 cup cream in a metal or glass bowl, using an electric mixer, until cream forms soft peaks when beaters are lifted directly up out of cream; gently fold in 2 tablespoons of confectioners' sugar and vanilla extract. Cover and refrigerate cream until ready to serve.
  7. To serve, split each shortcake round horizontally, using a serrated knife, and place bottoms of shortcakes onto serving plates. Spoon about 1/2 cup of strawberries and juice onto shortcake half; top with 1/4 cup of whipped cream. Place shortcake tops onto desserts; dust each dessert with about 1 teaspoon confectioners' sugar and a sprig of mint.

Happy to be the first one to rate this recipe! Was making a dessert for a diabetic friend and substituted 1 tblsp of Stevia for sugar in cake mix and 1/4 cup of stevia for strawberries (otherwise too sweet). Used (I pretty much always use honey for my whipped cream) Tupelo Honey (safe for people watching their sugar) and placed cakes in ramekins for easy transport. This is an awesome shortcake recipe (despite the substitutions), I'll try it using sugar next time and I know it will be even better! Thanks Divinity! 4 hrs later - neighbors LOVED this dessert...we were already stuffed after a delicious steak dinner YET they devoured it! (I was smiling!)
