Method

 
Preheat oven to 180 ºC. SHORTCAKE: Cream butter until fluffy, about 2 minutes. Gradually beat in icing sugar, mixing well. Mix in flour and salt and press mixture lightly together to form a dough. Roll out dough to 1 cm thick and cut out 8 rounds, each 10 cm in diameter, using a biscuit cutter. Transfer to a greased baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes, or until firm but still pale in colour. Remove from oven and cool slightly on baking sheet, then transfer to a wire rack and cool completely. TOPPING: Toss strawberries in sugar and leave to stand for 30 minutes. Beat cream, vanilla essence and apple jelly until stiff. To assemble, place 1 shortcake biscuit on a plate and cover with strawberries. Top with another biscuit, then another layer of strawberries. Finish with a dollop of flavoured cream.
