Ingredients

Shortcakes

  • 3 cups summer fruit (such as sliced strawberries, diced peaches, raspberries or blueberries)
  • 1 tablespoon maple-flavored syrup
  • 1 3/4 cups Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup reduced-fat margarine
  • 1/2 to 2/3 cup fat-free (skim) milk

Maple Cream

  • 1/3 cup whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 1 container (6 oz) Yoplait® Light Fat Free very vanilla yogurt or Yoplait® Original French vanilla yogurt
  • 3/4 teaspoon maple flavor

Steps

  • 1
    In large bowl, stir together fruit and maple syrup. Let stand about 1 hour until fruit becomes juicy.
  • 2
    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.
  • 3
    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.
  • 4
    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.)
  • 5
    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.
