Strawberry Shortcake Parfaits

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a 15x10x1-inch baking pan with parchment paper*; set aside. In a medium bowl combine flour, the 6 tablespoons sugar, the baking powder, salt, and baking soda. Using a pastry blender, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Using the back of a spoon, make a well in the center of the flour mixture. In a small bowl stir together egg, sour cream, and milk. Add egg mixture to flour mixture all at once, stirring with a fork just until moistened.
  2. Using a small offset metal spatula, spread dough evenly in the prepared pan. Bake for 16 to 18 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool completely in pan on wire rack.
  3. Meanwhile, combine 4 cups of the strawberries and the 3 tablespoons sugar. If desired, use a potato masher to mash berries slightly; set aside.
  4. To serve, using a x-inch round cutter, cut 12 pieces of shortcake. Layer 2 shortcake pieces, 1/2 cup strawberry mixture, and 1/3 cup Sweetened Whipped Cream into six 8-oz. regular mouth canning jars. Top with remaining sliced strawberries.
