SHORTCAKE
  1. 2 cups flour
  2. 6 tablespoons sugar, divided
  3. ½ tsp salt
  4. 8 tablespoons butter, cold and diced
  5. 2 eggs, divided
  6. ½ cup + 1 tablespoon cream
MASCARPONE CREAM
  1. 12 oz mascarpone cheese
  2. ⅓ cup cream
  3. 4 tablespoons confectioner's sugar
  4. 1 teaspoon vanilla
STRAWBERRY TOPPING
  1. 2-3 cups strawberries, mashed and sweetened if you prefer
Instructions
  1. SHORTCAKE: Preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. Whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Cut in the flour until the mixture resembles coarse meal.
  3. Beat one egg and combine with the cream. Pour into the flour mixture and stir until things start to stick together. Dump onto a floured work surface and knead gently until everything comes together.
  4. Shape dough into a rectangle about ¾-inch thick. Beat remaining egg and brush on top of the dough. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons sugar over the egg wash.
  5. Bake 12-15 minutes, until there is a nice golden color around the edges. Cool.
  6. MASCARPONE CREAM: Combine mascarpone, cream, and confectioner's sugar. Beat 1-2 minutes, until mixture is sturdy but not dry. Keep chilled.
  7. Cut a square of shortcake and cut in half. Top with mascarpone cream and strawberries. There are many ways to serve this--open faced, all on top, sandwich. Make your favorite and enjoy
