The first of the season’s berries are here. We have been enjoying them for breakfast with our homemade granola, baked in a crisp with rhubarb, and topped with a lightly sweet chantilly cream.

Strawberry Shortcake

Shortcakes
2 c. all-purpose flour
3 Tbsp. sugar
1 Tbsp. baking powder
½ tsp. salt
8 Tbsp. butter
1 lg. egg
½ c. heavy whipping cream
2 Tbsp. raw sugar
1 lg. egg white
1 Tbsp. rice flour

1. Place dry ingredients and butter in food processor and process until course. Add whole egg and whipping cream and process until mixture forms a dough ball.
2. Lightly dust cutting board with rice flour. Press out to about ½ inch thick. Use a cookie cutter and shape into 3 inch size shortcakes.
3. Place on silicon lined baking sheet. Brush egg white over each shortcake and sprinkle raw sugar on top.
4. Bake for 8-10 minutes until lightly golden brown. Cool on a rack. Serves 8

Strawberries
2 lbs. strawberries
¼ c. sugar
½ tsp. aged balsamic vinegar

1. Place 5-6 strawberries in food processor and purée until liquid. Place purée, sugar, and balsamic vinegar in bowl.
2. Cut up remaining strawberries into ¼ size pieces and add to bowl. Let stand 30 minutes to one hour so that strawberries release juices.

Chantilly Cream
½ c. heavy cream
2 tsp. confection sugar
½ tsp. vanilla extract

1. Beat until soft peaks form.

To assemble:
1. Slice shortcakes in half. Place half on a dish and pour strawberries on top.
