A refreshing, tangy twist on your strawberries and cream - ready for Wimbledon to begin.

Serves 6–8


  • 2 x 400g fresh strawberries
  • 1 tbsp Lincolnshire honey
  • 1 tbsp medium white wine
  • Fresh mint leaves
  • 1 scoop vanilla ice cream

For the shortbread

  • 250g butter at room temperature
  • 110g caster sugar
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • Grated zest of 1 lemon
  • 250g plain flour, sifted
  • 50g cornflour, sifted
  • 75g semolina


  1. Wash the strawberries and remove the stalks, slice in halves and put into a bowl. Mix the honey and white wine and pour over the strawberries, then refrigerate.
  2. To make the shortbread, preheat the oven to gas mark 4/180°C/fan 160°C. Beat the butter, sugar and lemon juice and zest in a bowl with an electric mixer until pale and fluffy. Stir in the sifted flours, cornflour and semolina.
  3. Press mixture together into a soft dough and roll it on to a floured surface. Knead but do not overwork. Roll out and cut into shapes or rounds.
  4. Place on a lightly greased baking tray, sprinkle with extra sugar and bake for 15-20 minutes, until golden brown. Cool and serve with the strawberries, topped with fresh mint, and ice cream.
