For the shortcake:
  • All Purpose Flour - 1 1/2 Cups
  • Sugar - 1/4 Cup
  • Butter - 1/2 Cups
  • Baking Powder2 tsp
  • Salt - 1/4 tsp
  • Heavy Cream - 1/2 Cup
  • Egg Yolk, beaten - 1

For the filling:
  • Strawberries - 2 pounds
  • Sugar - 2 Tbsp or more, depending on how sweet the berries are
  • Lemon - 1/2
  • Heavy whipping cream - 1 Cup


Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F (176°C), line a baking sheet with parchment paper in a cake pan and set aside.

Strawberry filling:
  • Place about one third of the strawberries in a bowl and crush them with a fork.
  • Slice the rest of the strawberries and add them in the same bowl, along with the sugar, lemon zest and juice.
  • Mix well and place the bowl in the fridge until the scones are done and completely cool.
Shortcake - scones:
  1. In a large bowl, sift together all dry ingredients: the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
  2. Cut the butter into small pieces and blend into the flour mixture with a pastry blender or an electric mixer, until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  3. In a small bowl whisk together the cream, beaten egg yolk and vanilla. Add this mixture to the flour mixture and combine together just until a dough forms.
  4. Transfer to a lightly floured board and knead the dough gently into about half inch thick.
  5. cut the dough into rounds with a cookie cutter or with a common water glass, 7-10 cm (2.8 - 4 inch) in diameter, as to your liking. Place the rounds on the prepared cookie sheet and brush the tops with egg wash or a little cream.
  6. Bake for about 20 minutes or until lightly golden. When done, transfer to a wire rack to completely cool.


  • When cool, carefully split the shortcake into two layers and set the top half nearby.
  • Spoon the mashed berries with their juice over the bottom layer of the shortcake and spread the lightly whipped cream on top of the berries.
  • Place the top half on and top with whipped cream and a few more strawberries.
    The few kiwi slices add also some color contrast to the decoration.
Makes about 6-8 servings, scones of a 2.8 inch (7 cm) diameter .

Bon Appétit!
