  1. Put the roughly chopped strawberries into a saucepan with 3 tbsp of water and bring to a simmer for 10 mins, stirring regularly. Use the back of the spoon to squidge the fruit and stir into a compote texture, then leave to cool. 
  2. Whisk the double cream to soft peaks, then fold the strawberry purée through the cream and spoon into a piping bag with a star nozzle. Pipe a little cream on one side of 10 shortcake bites. Be careful not to over fill, as the cream will spill out. 
  3. Add a few chopped strawberries on top and sandwich with another biscuit. Repeat. Serve with remaining chopped strawberries. Serve straight away.
