- 1¼ cups (150 g) flour

- ½ teaspoon (2.5 ml) salt
- 1 tbsp (15 ml) baking powder
- 8 tablespoons (120 g) cold butter, diced into cubes

- In a large bowl add flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, and whisk until combined. Then add butter working it into the flour with your hands, creating a coarse meal.

- Make a small well in the center of the flour mixture. Pour cream mixture into the well and work dough together with a fork until combined. Do not over mix. Allow dough to rest 5 mins to activate baking powder.
- Scoop out dough with an ice cream scooper placing 6 mounds on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Top each mound with a sprinkle of Turbinado sugar (or plain white sugar)
- Bake for 12-13 mins until golden brown and set.
- Meanwhile toss the strawberries together with the sugar. Keep refrigerated until ready to use.
- To make cream place all ingredients in a bowl fitted with an electric mixer whip until soft peaks form.
- To assemble. Slice the top ⅓ of shortcake off, set aside. Lay a layer of whipped cream on the base of the short cake, top with a scoop of strawberries, then place top of shortcake on top, Garnish with another small dollop of cream, and a sprig of mint of another whole strawberry.
