"Your Source for Strawberry Recipes Online"
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup powdered sugar, plus more for garnish
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1½ teaspoons grated orange zest
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 quart strawberries
2 tablespoons sugar
1 cup heavy whipping cream
2 teaspoons honey
To make shortbread, combine butter and sugar and beat until
well-blended and smooth, about 2 minutes. Add vanilla and orange
zest. Beat well. Beat in the flour and salt until well-combined.
Form the dough into a disc about 1 inch thick, wrap in plastic and
chill 3 hours or freeze up to 2 weeks (thaw in refrigerator).
Heat oven to 300 degrees. Roll the dough between plastic wrap or
waxed paper into a 9-by-12-inch rectangle. Using a 3-inch round
cookie cutter, cut the pastry into 12 rounds. Put them on an
ungreased baking sheet about 1 inch apart. Bake 25 to 30 minutes.
Hull berries. Cut up half the berries. Combine them with sugar in a
bowl. Let them stand for 20 minutes, then puree them in a blender.
Cut up remaining berries and combine with puree.
Beat cream with honey until it forms soft peaks.
For each serving, place a spoonful of cream on a plate, spreading it
into a 3-inch round. Cover the round with some strawberries, then a
wafer, then more cream, then more berries, then a wafer. Sprinkle
with powdered sugar.
