Ingredients
  

  • 2 Cups 500ml all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons 10ml baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon 2ml baking soda
  • 3 Tablespoons 45ml granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon 1ml salt
  • 1 Cup 250ml cold buttermilk plus more for brushing
  • ½ cup 125ml unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly
  • 3 Tablespoons 45ml coarse sugar
  • 540 ml can E.D.SMITH® Strawberry Pie Filling divided
  • 2 Cups 500ml heavy cream
  • 1-540 ml can E.D.SMITH® Strawberry Pie Filling

Directions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350ºF (170ºC).
  • Line a large baking sheet with parchment.
  • For the shortcakes:
  • In a large bowl, whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda, granulated sugar and salt to combine.
  • In a separate bowl, combine cold buttermilk and melted butter, stirring gently to form small clumps.
  • Add buttermilk mixture to dry ingredients with a fork until just combined.
  • Grease a 1/3 cup (75ml) dry measuring cup. Fill the cup then invert dropping the shortcake dough onto prepared baking sheet, 2- inches apart.
  • Brush tops with buttermilk and sprinkle tops with coarse sugar.
  • Place in the oven and bake 12-15 minutes or until golden on top.
  • For the topping/filling:
  • While shortcakes are cooling, whip all the heavy cream into stiff peaks (2-3 minutes).
  • Split each biscuit in half, horizontally and place the bottoms on separate plates.
  • Spoon ¼ Cup (60ml) Strawberry Pie filling on each shortcake bottom.
  • Top with whipped cream and the remaining shortcake tops.

Tips

  • If you have any pie filling left over, try spooning a small amount on each plate before placing shortcakes on top.
  • If you prefer a sweeter result, add sugar to taste while whipping cream.
