    Default strawberry shortcake - haven't made it in a few years

    Made it last weekend. I found the most wonderful
    shortcake recipe. You make it in the processor.
    It has butter and heavy cream in it. It is to die
    for! Found the nicest strawberries I've had in
    a long time. Made the whipped cream with heavy cream
    and put a good slug of vanilla in it. Yum!

    I'd post the recipe for the shortcake but I don't have
    it on the computer here at work, it's at home. I got it
    from a magazine of some sort years ago. I've always hated
    the horrible "shortcake" made from Bisquick which my aunt
    and others I know make for strawberry shortcake. I don't
    mind sponge cake but that's *not* shortcake so it's not
    really strawberry shortcake afiac!

    I love cooking with wine.
    Sometimes I even put it in the food.

    Sounds like James Beard's shortcake, which has both butter and heavy cream
    in it. His original recipe predates processors, but I use the processor now
    with the following ingredients (you guys know what to do with them):

    2 cups flour
    3 tablespoons sugar
    2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
    1 teaspoon salt
    3 ounces chilled unsalted butter
    3/4 cup heavy cream
    cooled melted butter to brush the cakes with before baking at 425.

    It is something to eat your heart out for, so to speak. When Beard died, the
    Junior Daughter expressed the hope that it was after dinner.

    I always use James Beard's recipe. Sometimes, I do use evaporated
    milk instead of cream. I think the sugar is more or less.
    Sometimes it is appropriate; other times it isn't.

    Yes, the amounts of ingredients were slightly different
    but very similar. (I think it was 2 1/2 c. flour, 1/3 c.
    sugar, 1 stick butter, 1 1/2 t. baking powder, and 1 c.
    heavy cream.) However there was sugar in it! Other
    than that not much difference. ;-) I patted it out to
    a circle about 1" thick and then cut it into 8 wedges.
    I don't like messing with biscuit cutters - then you have
    scraps to deal with.
