  • Place quartered strawberries in a bowl and sprinkle with ¼ cup sugar. Place in fridge and let fruit “sweat” out juices.
  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  • Sift together flour, sugar, salt and baking powder in a large bowl. Add 1 cup softened butter and mix. Add 1 ½ cups cream and mix until a soft dough forms. 
  • Knead the dough for a minute and roll out to about ½ inch thickness. Use a 3 inch circle cookie/biscuit cutter and place rounds on cookie sheet. Brush with melted butter and bake for 12-14 minutes (or until golden brown). These will be thicker and more biscuit-y than cake.
  • Make whipped cream with remaining whipping cream by beating the cream and vanilla until thickened.
  • Make short cakes by adding cake, then whipped cream and strawberries  with another cake on top. Add strawberries and more cream on top if desired.
