  • 6 tablespoons (3 ounce) milk
  • 4 tablespoon (2 ounce) caster sugar

  • 2. Add 2 tablespoon sugar. Rub in butter till it resembles coarse bread crumbs.
  • 3. Pour in milk and mix to form a soft dough. Let sit in fridge for a 10 – 15 minutes so it is easier to handle.

  • 8. Split the shortcakes in half. Spread cream and strawberries on one split shortcake and top with the other half, decorate with a swirl of cream on top and put a strawberry on it.
