Strawberry shortcake

I'm afraid strawberries are going to crop up quite often in the next few weeks, they are a personal favourite, and hard to beat in combination with fresh cream. I fancied a bit of a change so looked up strawberry shortbread.
I found this recipe from the BBC's ready steady cook. The shortbread looked quick and not too rich, and the ingredients looked like they fit into my minichop. The dry ones & the butter did, just. However I got a great sandy crumb texture, so did the egg yolk bit by hand.

Then its just a case of whipping the cream, folding in the fruit & a splash of bramble liquer. Build it on the plate/ dish and slap a whole strawberry on top. Another tasty strawberry dessert.
