Preheat the oven to 230 C, 450 F, Gas Mark 8. For the shortcakes: Sift
the flour, salt and baking powder into a large bowl, add the sugar and
butter, rub in until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Add in
the milk and mix until the mixture forms a soft dough. Knead on a
lightly floured surface for 30 seconds. Roll out to a thickness of 1cm
(1/2 inch). Cut out 8 discs with a 7cm (3 inch) cutter, rerolling the
trimmings where necessary. Place on a greased baking tray and cook for
15 minutes until risen and golden brown. Allow to cool. For the
strawberry coulis: Place the strawberries in a saucepan and cook for
10-15 minutes, or until soft and pulp like. Remove from the heat and
sieve to remove the seeds. Place to one side to cool. For the filling:
In a bowl combine the mascarpone with the cream to make a loose
mixture. Place a 1cm (1/2 inch) star nozzle into a forcing bag, and
pipe the mixture onto 4 of the shortcakes sandwiching together with
the remaining four discs. Dust with icing sugar. Flood the plate with
some strawberry coulis and top with a sandwiched shortcake and serve.
