Sliders are showing up on menus everywhere, but these strawberry shortcake sliders take the cake!


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 Tbs sugar, divided
  • 1 1/2 Tbs baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 8 Tbs cold unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 2 1/4 cups heavy cream, divided
  • 6 cups stemmed fresh strawberries, divided
  • 1 cup simple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • confectioner's sugar
  • mint chiffonade


  • Sift flour, 2 tablespoons sugar, baking powder and salt into a bowl. With a fork or pastry cutter, cut in butter to fine particles. Stir in 1 to 1 1/2 cups cream (enough so that dough holds together and is soft but not sticky). On a floured surface, knead dough lightly a few times to form a ball. Pat into a 1/2-inch-thick circle. Wrap in plastic wrap; refrigerate at least 15 minutes.
  • Heat oven to 400°F. With a 2-inch round cutter, cut dough into 12 circles. Place on parchment-lined baking sheet; bake 15-20 minutes or until golden.
  • In a saucepan, simmer 4 cups strawberries with simple syrup until jam-like consistency; cool. Slice remaining strawberries. Whip 3/4 cup cream with vanilla and 1 tablespoon sugar until soft peaks form.
  • To serve, cut shortcakes in half horizontally. Place 3 shortcake bottoms on each of 4 plates. Top with cooked strawberries, whipped cream and sliced strawberries, dividing ingredients evenly. Place tops on shortcakes; dust with confectioner's sugar and sprinkle with mint.
