Let Me Call You Sweetheart Shortcakes













Let Me Call You Sweetheart shortcakes :


This will make lots of various sized cut outs - how many

depends on the size of your cookie cutters.

You will need:


A preheated oven, 375'


1 3/4 cups King Arthur flour


1 heaping teaspoon baking powder


pinch of salt and nutmeg


6 tablespoons unslated butter, cold


2 teaspoons sugar


1/2 plus 1 tablespoon milk


sugar for sprinkling


Line a baking sheet with foil or parchment.


In mixing bowl, place flour, baking powder, salt, and


nutmeg.


Cut butter into little cubes, add to flour mix and mix til it looks


crumbly. Mix in the sugar, and milk, and mix til dough forms a


ball.


Turn dough out onto board, roll to about an inch thick. Cut with


cookie cutters. You can re-roll this dough without it getting tough.


Place on cookie sheet and place in oven for about 25 minutes.


Transfer to cooling rack.


For strawberry sauce:


a small box of fresh strawberries, hulled


1 tablespoon orange juice


Mash together berries and orange juice. Taste, and add


sugar if needed. You can also make some nice whipped


cream, if you like.


Split each shortcake in half carefully. Spoon some strawberries


over bottom, top with other shortcake half, and add more berries.


I make tiny little stars or hearts to pop on top of the whole, put-


together shortcake.
