Ingredients

3 1/4 cups flour

1/2 cups sugar

2 1/2 tablespoons baking powder

6 ounces very cold butter, cut into 1 1/2-inch cubes

1 1/4 cups cold heavy cream

Sugar in the raw

12 fresh figs, chopped

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a large mixing bowl, combine all the dry ingredients and cubed butter. Using the paddle attachment, blend the ingredients at low speed until the mixture resembles a coarse meal. Add the chilled heavy cream to the butter and flour mixture and mix until the dough just comes together. Allow the dough to rest for 5 minutes. Finish mixing the dough by hand until it forms a solid mass. Roll the dough until it is about 1-inch thick. Cut the dough into the desired shortcake shape. Place the shortcakes on a parchment lined baking sheet. Chill. Remove the shortcakes from the refrigerator. Brush tops with heavy cream and sprinkle with sugar. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden. Garnish with figs.
