75g unsalted butter
4 tbsp milk
3 tbsp caster sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1 egg, beaten
½ tsp vanilla essence
250g fresh strawberries

Preheat the oven to 200°C and line a tray with baking paper.
Sift together flour and baking powder. Add the butter and using fingertips rub together until resembles fine breadcrumbs.
Add in sugar and combine well.

Place the dough onto a lightly floured surface and roll out to approximately 20cm in diameter.
Transfer onto the prepared tray and bake for 10-15 minutes or until firm and golden. Place on a wire rack to cool.
Meanwhile wash and hull the strawberries and cut into slices.

Repeat with another layer of cream, then strawberries.
Place the top half of the shortcake over and spread cream over the top.
Decorate with extra strawberries and icing sugar to serve.
