Strawberry Shortcakes

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (spooned and leveled), plus more for dusting
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • Strawberries
  • Whipped Cream

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. In a food processor, combine flour, butter, 1/3 cup sugar, baking powder, and salt; process until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add milk; pulse just until moistened, 4 or 5 times. Do not over process.

Turn out dough onto a lightly floured surface; with floured hands, gently pat dough into a 4-by-8-inch rectangle.

Dust a large knife with flour; cut dough into 8 squares. Transfer to a baking sheet; sprinkle with 1 tablespoon sugar. Bake until golden, 25 to 30 minutes; cool on baking sheet. To serve, split biscuits with a serrated knife; layer with berries and Whipped Cream.
