- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 3/4 cup buttermilk
- 1 1/2 pounds strawberries (hulled)
- 1 pint heavy whipping cream

- Add in the butter and process until mixture resembles coarse crumbs, about a minute.
- With the motor running, pour the buttermilk and vanilla into the feed tube and process until dough begins to come together in a ball.
- Remove dough from bowl and form it into a disc. Roll dough out to 1/2 inch thickness and use a 3 inch circular cutter to cut dough into rounds.
- Place rounds on a lined baking sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes or until raised and lightly browned. Cool to room temperature.
- Wash and dry mini-bowl and blade and place back into work bowl.

- Remove mini-bowl and place slicing disc into the work bowl. Set to the 6th notch from the left. Feed the strawberries through the small feed tube to slice.
- To assemble shortcakes, slice each biscuit in half and place 4-5 strawberry slices on one half. Spoon 1 tablespoon of whipped cream over top strawberries and place other biscuit half on top.
