Ingredients

  • 1 pint fresh strawberries, rinsed, dried, and cut into quarters
  • 4 large ripe peaches, peeled and cut into ½ inch wedges
  • 1 Tbs. fresh lemon juice
  • 2 Tbs. honey
  • 1 Tbs. black currant syrup
  • 1 Tbs. Cointreau liqueur (optional)
  • 2 cups Jovial einkorn flour
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 Tbs. baking powder
  • 2 Tbs. superfine sugar
  • 4 oz. (1 stick) cold unsalted organic butter, cut into 1/4 inch pieces
  • ¾ cup + 2 Tbs. 2% buttermilk

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Combine strawberries, peaches, lemon juice, honey, currant syrup, and liqueur, if using, in large glass bowl. Toss lightly to combine, and refrigerate mixture at least 1 hour.
  2. Combine flour, salt, baking powder, and sugar in food processor, and pulse several times to combine. Add butter, and pulse until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add 3/4 cup buttermilk, and pulse until dry ingredients are moistened and dough begins to clump around blade.
  3. Dump dough onto lightly-floured, dry flat surface and, using heel of your hand, quickly press out clumps of dough in a smoothing motion, five or six motions in all. Gather dough together, divide into six portions, and lightly pat each portion into ½-inch-thick round. Place rounds onto parchment-covered baking sheet, brush tops with remaining buttermilk, and bake 10-12 minutes, until lightly browned and set. Let cool on wire rack.
  4. Cut each shortcake in half. Place bottom half on dessert plate, spoon in generous amount of fruit mixture, and top with other half of shortcake.
