Mixed Berry Shortcake
Ingredients
  • 1/2  cup  all-purpose flour
  • 2  teaspoons  granulated sugar
  • 3/4  teaspoon  baking powder
  • 1/8  teaspoon  cream of tartar
  • 1/8  teaspoon  baking soda
  • 1  tablespoon  butter
  • 1/4  cup  buttermilk or sour milk*
  •  Coarse sugar (optional)
  • 1/3  cup  whipping cream
  • 2  teaspoons  granulated sugar
  • 2  cups  mixed berries (such as raspberries, blueberries, and/or sliced strawberries)
Directions

1. In a medium bowl stir together the flour, 2 teaspoons granulated sugar, baking powder, cream of tartar, and baking soda. Using a pastry cutter or two table knives, cut in the butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Make a well in the center of flour mixture. Add buttermilk all at once to flour mixture. Using a fork, stir just until moistened.

2. Drop the dough into 2 mounds on a greased baking sheet. If desired, sprinkle with coarse sugar. Bake, uncovered, in a 450 degrees oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown.

3. In a small bowl beat the whipping cream and 2 teaspoons granulated sugar with an electric mixer on medium speed or with a rotary beater until soft peaks form (tips curl).

4. Split the shortcakes into 2 layers. Place the bottom layers in 2 dessert bowls. Spoon some of the berries and whipped cream over bottom layers. Top with the remaining shortcake layers, berries, and whipped cream.
