Identify the Dessert....????
A flaky biscuit or cake base, topped with sweetened fruit and whipped cream.
Shortcake dough is leavened with baking powder, like biscuits, but is enriched with butter, egg, cream and a little sugar. It's gently kneaded, then patted out and cut into circles for a brief baking.
The name "shortcake" dates to William Shakespeare's England, according to The Oxford Companion to Food by Alan Davidson, although its 16th-century meaning varied widely from a shortbread-like cookie to a small cake.
