Preparation Time: X minutes
Cooking Time: X minutes
Makes: 12 servings

Ingredients
250g self-raising flour
75g unsalted butter
4 tbsp milk
3 tbsp caster sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1 egg, beaten
½ tsp vanilla essence

Filling:

Place the top half of the shortcake over and spread cream over the top.



Decorate with extra strawberries and icing sugar to serve.
