Fresh Berry Shortcakes - by Lisa

Making biscuits was a first for me! Before this recipe, I've always had the impression that biscuits were these dry bland things. But THESE biscuits were super yum! They were sweet, a little crumbly, and tasted so good. Needless to say, I was very pleasantly surprised.

I got a little creative with cutting out the biscuits from the dough and used my wet/dry Pampered Chef measuring cup. It made them the perfect size! I also wound up using my baking stone with these as I'd already packed away the rest of my baking sheets. (Yes, I am 4 weeks away from giving birth and we are moving next weekend to a bigger place down the street. Crazy, no?) I think they cooked up quite nicely and were done in about 13 minutes.


For the berry topping, I used 3 cups of strawberries and 1 cup of blueberries. I added an extra tablespoon of sugar to make sure the berries were good and sweet. Making the whipped cream was the final step and it was time for assembly!

I served up the yummy treats to hubby and my niece who is visiting us for the week. All around thumbs up with the only exception being they were a little tricky to eat. That was no obstacle to the devouring and hubby was nearly licking the plate clean! I am looking forward to having these again for dessert tomorrow night.
