  • PREHEAT oven to 425F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Stir flour with 2 tbsp sugar, baking powder, salt and zest in a large bowl until blended.
  • MIX in butter, using your fingers, until mixture forms coarse crumbs.
  • GRADUALLY stir in 3/4 cup 10% cream, just until dough can be formed into a ball.
  • DIVIDE into 8 equal wedges on a lightly floured counter.
  • GENTLY pat each into a circle about 2 1/4 in. wide and 3/4 in. thick. Arrange biscuits on prepared sheet at least 1 in. apart.
  • BRUSH with 1 tbsp 10% cream. Sprinkle with coarse sugar. Bake in centre of oven until lightly golden, 12 to 14 min. Cool on a rack.
  • USE a sharp paring knife to slice vanilla bean in half lengthwise. Scrape out vanilla seeds. Whip 35% cream, using an electric mixer on medium, until firm peaks form when beaters are lifted. Beat in vanilla seeds and 1 to 3 tbsp sugar.
  • CUT cooled shortcakes in half horizontally and layer with cream and sliced strawberries.
