Bisquick

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 quarts strawberries, sliced (6 cups)
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 4 2/3 cups Original Bisquick™ mix
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup chopped dried cherries
  • 6 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 6 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
  • 2 cups blueberries
  • 3/4 cup whipping (heavy) cream
  • 2 tablespoons granulated or powdered sugar

Steps

  • 1
    Mix strawberries and 1 1/2 cups sugar. Let stand 1 hour.
  • 2
    Heat oven to 425°F. Mix Bisquick mix, milk, cherries, 6 tablespoons sugar and the butter until soft dough forms.
  • 3
    Gently smooth dough into ball on surface sprinkled lightly with Bisquick mix. Knead 10 times. Roll dough 1/2 inch thick. Cut with floured 3-inch star-shaped or round cutter. Place about 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown.
  • 4
    Stir blueberries into strawberries. Beat whipping cream and 2 tablespoons sugar in chilled medium bowl with electric mixer on high speed until stiff. Split shortcakes in half. Fill and top with berries and whipped cream.

  • Get a jump start on making shortcake! Before baking, cover and refrigerate the cut dough on the cookie sheet for up to 4 hours, or wrap and freeze for up to 48 hours.
  • Try fresh raspberries instead of strawberries, or ditch the red, white and blue theme and use blackberries, sliced peaches or even sliced plums!
  • Shortcakes contain a lot of sugar, so having a dark bottom crust is normal. Be sure to place the cookie sheet in the center of the oven to ensure even browning.
