  • Preheat the oven to 180C and grease a baking tray. Wash the strawberries, slice and sprinkle with caster sugar.
  • In a mixing bowl beat the butter with the sugar until smooth.  Stir in the flour until well incorporated.
  • Using your hands press together into a dough and turn out onto a lightly floured surface.

  • Now that the shortbread is stone cold spread them with the whipped cream and layer with strawberry slices.

Makes 12-16 strawberry shortcakes.

Top tip: Try using other summer fruits such as raspberries, redcurrants and cherries.
