This recipe is inspired by the beautiful spring sunshine and the leftover mascarpone cheese from a recent Tasting Tuesday featuring Crave Brothers Cheese.
Preheat oven to 425oF.
Whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Cut in the flour until the mixture resembles coarse meal.
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.
Shape dough into a rectangle about ¾-inch thick. Beat remaining egg and brush on top of the dough. Sprinkle 2 Tbsp sugar over the egg wash.
Bake 12-15 minutes, until there is a nice golden color around the edges. Cool.
Combine cheese, cream, and confectioner's sugar. Beat 1-2 minutes, until mixture is sturdy but not dry. Keep chilled.
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
