There's nothing quite like good old-fashioned strawberry shortcake! I must admit though I did have to play with this recipe a bit to make it work for me. I doubled the sugar as I like a sweeter shortcake and I reduced the cinnamon to 1 tsp. I added a little more egg and cut back on the butter. Since I wasn't sure how "whipped cream" would turn out so I used buttermilk instead and enough to get the dough workable. I let wrapped the dough in plastic wrap and let it chill for a half hour. I then rolled it out onto a well floured surface and cut it with heart shaped cookie cutters before putting it into the oven. I also did an egg wash and topped the heart-shaped shortcakes with a bit of turbinado sugar for a little extra crunch. They baked up beautifully and tasted great with the strawberries and whipped cream. A wonderful summertime treat and a great way to use fresh strawberries!
I did not care for this recipe.
