I set out to find a new shortcake recipe and found myself cruising Foodnetwork.com. Wolfgang Puck’s recipe stood out from all the others because it used plenty of butter and cream … and I could make it in the food processor! (I am beginning to develop quite a relationship with my food processor. So easy to throw all the ingredients in and give them a whirl.)
I was able to get 9 shortcakes (recipe said 10). Leave plenty of room on the pan between each shortcake as they do raise and spread. If they run together you lose the beautiful round shape. Just prior to baking I brushed each cake top with cream and sprinkled with a clear, larger sanding sugar.
To get the perfect soft shortcake, follow the recipe directions and split and warm just before serving. I microwaved each one for about 10 seconds or so.
** WARNING **WARNING **
DO NOT TURN YOUR BACK ON YOUR STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE & WALK AWAY!
TRUMAN JUST COULD NOT RESIST THE WHIPPED CREAM.
