  • 1
    In 2-quart saucepan, heat cranberries and 1/3 cup apple juice to boiling. Stir in apples; reduce heat. Simmer uncovered about 5 minutes or until apples are softened. In small bowl, mix remaining filling ingredients; stir into cranberry mixture. Cook, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens and boils. Boil and stir 1 minute; remove from heat. (Filling can be served warm or cool.)
  • 2
    Heat oven to 425°F. In medium bowl, mix all shortcake ingredients until soft dough forms. On surface lightly dusted with Bisquick mix, gently roll dough in Bisquick mix to coat. Knead 8 to 10 times. Roll 1/2 inch thick. Cut with 3-inch round cutter dipped in Bisquick mix. Place on ungreased cookie sheet.

    Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Split shortcakes horizontally. Fill and top shortcakes with filling. Top with whipped topping.

Expert Tips

  • Replace the apple juice with cranberry juice for a tangy filling.
  • For a fun fall dessert, use a large apple-shaped cookie cutter to cut out shortcakes, and garnish filled shortcakes with a fresh mint leaf.
