Number of Servings: 8

450 Gram(s) Plain Flour } Sieved
225 Gram(s) Semolina } Together
450 Gram(s) Butter
225 Gram(s) Caster Sugar, infused with
675 Gram(s) Ripe Strawberries, reserve
9 perfect
ones for garnish
290 Double cream
3 Red Roses from old fashioned
scented not sprayed
roses insecticide
1 Tablespoon(s) Icing sugar
1/2 Teaspoon(s) Rose Water
2 Teaspoon(s) Lemon Juice
2 Rose Buds
1 Egg white, lightly beaten
Caster Sugar in a Fine
Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Gradually work in the
flour and semolina. You will have to use your hand to blend in the
last bits into a dough. Knead lightly until smooth. Divide into 2
pieces and roll out each piece carefully onto a floured surface. This
is a very fragile dough. Using a fluted pastry cutter, cut out 16
circles. Lift onto greased and floured baking sheets and put in
refrigerator to rest and chill. Prepare rose cream. Put the lemon
juice into a basin. Crush scented rose petals in your hand and drop
them into the lemon juice, turning them over gently to keep the colour
fresh. Add cream to the whole lot, together with the icing sugar and
rose water. Stir all together and leave to infuse for 30 minutes. Bake
the shortcakes until tinged golden only. Remove onto cooling trays
with a palette knife. They will turn crisp as they cool. Sieve the
cream, discarding the petals. Whisk until it is firm. Taste. Spread
each shortcake with cream, then sliced strawberries, then top with the
second shortcake. Dredge with wonder dust. Garnish with crystallised
rose petals and some tiny mint leaves. Converted by MC_Buster. NOTES
