Watch as Better Homes and Gardens shows you how to make strawberry shortcake! This strawberry shortcake recipe makes a true shortcake--flaky, tender, and sweet with strawberries and cream.

Cooking Recipe

1 & 1/2 cup flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/3 cup butter, cold
1 egg
1/2 cup plain yogurt
3 tbsp milk
5 cups strawberries, sliced
1 cup whipped cream
2 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla

1. Preheat your oven to 400°F as you line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Mix 1 1/2 cups of flour, 1/4 cup of sugar, 1 teaspoon of baking powder, 1/4 teaspoon of salt, and 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda together.

2. Add in 1/3 cup of very cold butter that has been cut into small pieces, using a pastry blender to cut the butter in until the batter is coarse crumbs. Whisk an egg and 1/2 cup of plain yogurt or sour cream with 3 tablespoons of milk, pouring these wet ingredients into the flour mixture.

3. Use a fork to stir the dough until it's just combined, but be careful not to overmix it. Drop the dough into 8 mounds onto the baking sheet, and barely round them for a rustic, homemade touch. Bake the strawberry shortcake dough for a little under 15 minutes. Slice 5 cups of strawberries lengthwise and toss them with 3 tablespoons of sugar to make the syrup.

4. For the whipped cream recipe, pour 1 cup of whipping cream into a chilled bowl and beat together with 2 tablespoons of sugar and 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla until it has soft peaks. Cut the strawberry shortcakes in half horizontally, spooning on the strawberries and whipped cream to layer them beautifully.

5. This dessert recipe is now complete! Use this simple strawberry shortcake recipe as an easy dessert for a dinner party, a weekend brunch, or just a delicious treat!
