Shortcake Crumb

Shortcake Crumb

Makes about 1 cup (300 g)


Step 1

Heat the oven to 250°F.

Step 2

Combine the cake flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl. Toss with your hands to mix.

Step 3

Add the melted butter and vanilla extract. Toss using a spatula until the mixture starts to come together and form small clusters.

Step 4

Spread the clusters on a parchment-or Silpat-lined sheet pan and bake for 30 minutes. The crumbs should be sandy at that point, and your kitchen should smell like buttery heaven. Cool the crumbs completely.

Step 5

Crumble any shortcake crumb into clusters that are larger than ½ inch in diameter.

Step 6

The crumbs will keep in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer for up to 1 month.
