Berry Shortcake

I forget how great berry shortcakes are when it’s been a while since having them.

After cleaning the berries and adding a little sugar let it sit for a while to macerated the fruit. I add a bit of lemon juice because I like the counter balance to all the sweetness.

whipped cream

I don’t sweeten the whipped cream but I like a bit of vanilla for the extra flavor.

My mom always made it with drop biscuits but I like to roll mine.

My biscuits

4 c flour

6 tps. b. powder

2 tps. salt

3/4 c cold butter, cut in pieces

1  1/3 c cold heavy cream

– Preheat oven to 450

– Mix together the dry ingredients.

– Cut in the butter.

– Stir in the cream and knead a little. ( I love the feel of it so I always have to stop before I think the dough is done, otherwise I will have berry short-bricks!)

– Roll out the dough to an oval and cut in 9 pieces.

– Place on baking sheet, brush with melted butter and sprinkle with raw sugar.

– Bake 12 min.

A little left over berries in water, very refreshing!
