Whip the cream until it holds it shape, add the seeds from the vanilla pod and 1 half of the icing sugar.

Hull and half the strawberries and set to the side.

Take half of the prepared strawberries and heat gently until very soft then blend to make a delicious strawberry coulis.

Place one of the shortbread thins on your serving plates, add a large dollop of cream onto the biscuit and place the strawberries around the edge of the biscuit, place another biscuit on top.

Pour the cooled coulis around the outside of the biscuits and dust with the remaining icing sugar. Serve immediately.
