Strawberry Shortcake

Strawberry Shortcake

♫ Listening to: We've Had Enough by Alkaline Trio ♫

Shortcake Ingredients:

  • 3 c flour
  • 1 T baking powder
  • ¼ t salt
  • 5 T cold coconut oil or earth balance
  • 5 T sugar
  • 1 c nondairy milk

Shortcake Directions:

Preheat the oven to 400°.

Using the dough hook, combine the dry ingredients in the kitchenaid.

Cut in the earth balance or coconut oil little pieces at a time and mix until crumbly.

Slowly add the non-dairy milk while mixing until all the dough forms a nice tight ball.

Place the dough on a lightly floured cutting board or counter and roll it to ½ inch thickness.

Cut out shapes using a cookie cutter.

Cutting biscuits

Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper.

Place the cut dough pieces gently onto the cookie sheets.

Before baking

Bake for 10-20 minutes, depending on the size of your biscuits. I baked mine for only 10 minutes, because they were babies.

Remove from the oven and transfer to cooling racks.

Whipped Cream Ingredients:

  • 2 cans of coconut cream (I buy mine from Trader Joe’s.)
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla
  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • ½ teaspoon xantham gum

Coconut Cream

Whipped Cream Directions:

Whisk the ingredients until smooth in the kitchenaid.

Transfer into piping bag fitted with tip of choice.

Chill bag overnight if you’re planning to pipe it like I am.

To assemble, I just piped a dollop of whipped cream onto each biscuit. Then I took a cute toothpick, poked a strawberry slice, and then poked the rest of the toothpick into the biscuit topped with whipped cream. (I got a lot of my cute toothpicks in Japan, but Amazon sells these ones.)

If you have to transport these after you make them (like to the patio of a nearby bar), I suggest bringing a friend to volunteer to hold them on their lap while you drive.
