Summer Fruit Shortcakes with Maple Cream
cups summer fruit (such as sliced strawberries, diced peaches, raspberries or blueberries)
tablespoon maple-flavored syrup
cups Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
tablespoons granulated sugar
teaspoons baking powder
cup reduced-fat margarine
to 2/3 cup fat-free (skim) milk
cup whipping cream
tablespoons powdered sugar
container (6 oz) Yoplait® Light Fat Free very vanilla yogurt or Yoplait® Original French vanilla yogurt
teaspoon maple flavor
In large bowl, stir together fruit and maple syrup. Let stand about 1 hour until fruit becomes juicy.
Heat oven to 450°F. Spray large cookie sheet with cooking spray. In medium bowl, stir together flour, granulated sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in margarine, using pastry blender or crisscrossing 2 knives, until mixture looks like fine crumbs. Stir in milk just until blended.
Drop dough by 8 spoonfuls about 2 inches apart onto cookie sheet. Bake 11 to 13 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack.
In small bowl, beat whipping cream and powdered sugar with electric mixer on high speed until soft peaks form. Gently fold in yogurt and maple flavor. (Refrigerate until ready to serve.)
Split shortcakes horizontally in half while warm. Place about 1/4 cup fruit and 1 tablespoon Maple Cream on bottom half of each shortcake. Add shortcake tops. Top each with additional fruit and 1 tablespoon Maple Cream.
For tender shortcakes, try not to overmix or overwork the dough.
