Ingredients

Strawberries:

  • 2 pounds strawberries , hulled and cleaned, sliced
  • 2/3 cup sugar or more
  • 1 cup whipped cream

Shortcakes:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter , unsalted, cold
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup chocolate chips , plus extra - for topping

Instructions

Strawberries:

  1. Combine sliced strawberries and sugar in a large bowl and mix together. Let the strawberries sit in sugar for a bit to bring out their juices and form a very yummy syrup.

Shortcakes:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a food processor, combine and process flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Chop cold butter in small cubes, add to the food processor and process until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Add milk, and pulse a few times just until combined. Turn off the food processor, remove the blade, then, using spatula, fold in chocolate chips, avoiding to handle the dough too much.
  3. Move the dough onto a lightly floured surface. With floured hands, divide the dough into 6 or 8 equal portions, and drop the dough in small flattened balls on the prepared baking sheet.
  4. Bake the shortcakes for about 15-20 minutes, until the tops turn golden-brown. For decorating purposes, after 10 minutes of baking, remove the baking sheet from the oven and carefully place extra chocolate chips on top of each shortcake, lightly pressing the chips in so that they remain on top (which already gets crusty) and don't fall off - and then, return the baking sheet to the oven, and continue baking for the remaining amount of time.

Assembly:

  1. Let the biscuits cool. Using serrated knife, slice each biscuit in half. To serve, place the bottom side of biscuit on a serving plate, top with strawberries, then whipped cream. Place the top side of the biscuit on top, then add more cream or strawberries or both! Sprinkle a few chocolate chips over the each serving.
