We here at We Got Kidz always enjoy a good tasty sweet treat.  Since Love Day is fast approaching, we wanted to share this awesome recipe for heart-shaped strawberry shortcake brought to you via ivillage.com (one of our favorite sites). Enjoy!… and don’t forget to share. 😉

ingredients

2 cups all-purpose flour 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
5 tablespoons granulated sugar, plus extra for sprinkling 2 hard-boiled egg yolks, mashed with a fork
1 tablespoon baking powder 1 raw egg yolk beaten with 1 tablespoon water
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, cut into 8 pieces 4 to 5 cups sliced strawberries
Yield: 6 Servings

directions

Prep: 15 min Total: 30 min
  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F and grease a baking sheet.
  • Measure the flour, 3 tablespoons of the sugar and baking powder into the work bowl of a food processor and pulse to combine. Add the butter and pulse until the mixture resembles cornmeal. Add 1/2 cup of the cream and mashed egg yolks and pulse until the dough forms a soft ball.
  • Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface and pat it into a rectangle about 1 inch thick. Cut 4 circles with a 3-inch biscuit cutter, then pat the scraps together in order to cut 2 more circles.
  • Lay the 6 circles on the baking sheet and use a paring knife to make a 1-inch cut into the top of each circle. Gently pull apart the shortcake at the cut and shape it into the rounded top of a heart, then shape the bottom of the shortcake into a point.
  • Brush the biscuits with the beaten raw egg yolk and sprinkle with a little sugar. Bake 12 minutes, until just golden brown.
  • While the shortcakes bake, toss the strawberries with the remaining sugar in a large bowl and set aside. Whip the remaining cream in a medium bowl until soft peaks form.
  • To serve, split the shortcake hearts in half and put a bottom half on each of 6 dessert plates. Spoon on some strawberries and whipped cream, then top each with a top half.
