Chocolate Strawberry Shortcakes

I hosted Bunco at my house this past week and decided some Chocolate Strawberry Shortcakes would be great for the treat. And you know what? I was right! They were yummy!

And here’s a look at one of the shortcakes since they are the star of the show. Delicious even without the berries and cream.

1 1/3 cups flour

1/4 cup cocoa powder

1/4 cup sugar

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

3 oz cold butter, cubed

1/2 cup sour cream

3 tablespoons milk

1 egg

1 teaspoon vanilla

turbinado sugar for sprinkling (you can find this at Trader Joe’s)

1 Preheat oven to 400.

2 Whisk together flour, cocoa, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl. Add cubed butter and use a pastry cutter (or a large fork or two small forks) to cut butter into small pieces into the flour mixture (no bigger than a pea, you’re looking for coarse crumbs here).

3 Whisk together egg, sour cream, milk, and vanilla together in a small bowl then add to flour mixture. Mix until combined.

4 Use a 2 oz ice cream scoop to portion dough out onto cookie sheets lined with parchment. Sprinkle with turbinado sugar.

5 Bake for 15 – 17 minutes. Let cool then top with whipped cream (recipe here) and sliced strawberries.
