Summer Strawberry Shortcake

4 pints strawberries, rinsed and hulled
14 cup sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
3 tablespoons sugar
18 teaspoon salt
12 cup unsalted butter, cold and cut into small pieces
34 cup heavy cream
1 cup heavy cream, whipped, add sugar as desired


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Cut strawberries in half and combine with 1/4 cup sugar. Set aside. In a large bowl combine flour, baking powder, 3 tablespoons sugar, and salt. Add the cold butter pieces and use a pastry blender, fork, or your fingertips to combine until the mixture resembles a coarse meal. Add the cream a little at a time combining with a fork. Place dough on a floured work surface and knead gently just until the dough is not sticky. Roll the dough out 1/2 thick and cut with a 3 inch cutter. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes until lightly golden. Cool slightly. Split biscuits and top with strawberries and whipped cream.
