Ready Time

40 mins

Yields

9 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup heavy cream, whipped
  • 1 1/2 cups sliced strawberries
  • 1/4 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 9 wooden skewers or lollipop sticks

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.

In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat the butter until creamy, about 2 minutes.

Add the egg and vanilla extract, beating until well combined.

Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, beating until a dough forms.

Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough to about 1/4 inch thickness.

Cut into 1-inch squares, about 24-30 squares.

Place a square on the end of each skewer, leaving a small border at the top.

Place a strawberry slice on top of the dough square.

Spoon a small dollop of whipped cream on top of the strawberry.

Sprinkle with confectioners’ sugar.

Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until lightly golden brown.

Allow to cool completely on a wire rack.

Serve immediately, or store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 hours before serving.

Notes

Use high-quality strawberries for the best flavor and texture.

You’ll need about 1 1/2 cups sliced strawberries for this recipe.

Before starting, make sure your butter is at room temperature, as this will help it cream with the sugar more easily.

Don’t overwork the dough when you’re mixing it, as this can lead to tough shortcake.

Stop mixing as soon as the ingredients come together in a cohesive ball.

When cutting out the dough squares, try to make them as uniform as possible so that they bake evenly.

Keep an eye on the shortcake skewers while they’re baking, as they can go from perfectly golden to burnt quickly.

If you’re not serving immediately, be sure to store the skewers in an airtight container in the refrigerator to keep them fresh.

These shortcake skewers are perfect for parties or outdoor gatherings, as they’re easy to eat while standing and can be made ahead of time.
