1 cup sliced strawberries
1 1/2 cups beaten whipped cream

For The Garnish
icing sugar for dusting
2 strawberries fans

Method
For the shortcakes

  1. Cream the butter and sugar on a flat surface with your palm, until it is light and creamy. (refer to diagram on page 40 )
  2. Add the vanilla essence and mix well.
  3. Add the flour and almond powder and gradually continue mixing till it forms a soft dough. Refrigerate for 15 minutes.
  4. Divide the dough into 6 equal portions and roll each portion on a dusted rolling board into 100mm. (4”) diameter circle.
  5. Prick all over the circle gently and bake in a pre-heated oven at 150°c (300°f) for 20 to 25 minutes or till it turns light brown in colour. Keep aside

How to proceed

  1. Place one shortcake on a clean dry surface, pipe out ¼th of the beaten whipped cream on top and arrange ¼th of the strawberries over it.
  2. Sandwich with another shortcake and again pipe out ¼th of the beaten whipped cream on top and place another ¼th of the strawberries over it. Finally place one more shortcake over it.
  3. Dust a little icing sugar on top of the shortcake and garnish with a strawberry fan.
  4. Repeat steps 1 to 3 to make one more stuffed shortcake.
  5. Serve immediately with strawberry sauce.

If you love to eat strawberries with cream,you will love it all the more when sandwiched between almond shortcakes and served strawberry sauce. I made 3 shortcake sandwiches instead of two, as it is easier to eat and just enough please the sweet craving.
