• Prep Time: 30 minutes
  • Cook Time: 25 minutes
  • Serves: 8 servings
  • 1/4 Cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 Packages (16 ounces each) Driscoll's Strawberries, hulled and quartered
  • 2 Cups heavy cream
  • 1 Tsp. vanilla extract
  • 10 Tablespoons chilled unsalted butter, cut into small pieces plus more for pans
  • 3 1/2 Cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 Cup granulated sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. baking powder
  • 1 Tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 Tsp. salt
  • 1 3/4 Cups heavy cream
  • PREHEAT oven to 375°F.

    GREASE insides of 3 (8-inch) round cake pans with butter.

    MIX flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a food processor (or large bowl).

    ADD butter and pulse (or cut in with a pastry blender) until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Classic Piece of My Childhood I seen this recipe several time and finally decided to make it because it seemed like it was calling for me and I'm glad it did. This recipe reminded me of the Strawberry Shortcake my Grandmother use to make when I was a kid. I am glad I found this recipe because this is going to be my new favorite dessert to make.
