Piled-High Shortcake
Ingredients
  • 3/4  cup  all-purpose flour
  • 2  teaspoons  granulated sugar
  • 1  teaspoon  baking powder
  • 1/8  teaspoon  baking soda
  •  dash salt
  • 2  tablespoons  butter
  • 1/4  cup  lowfat buttermilk
  • 1  slightly beaten egg yolk
  •  Nonstick cooking spray
  • 1/2 8  ounce package  fat free cream cheese, softened
  • 1 6  ounce carton  plain nonfat yogurt
  • 3  tablespoons  low-sugar strawberry preserves
  • 1 1/2  cups  fresh boysenberries, raspberries, and/or blackberries
Directions

1. For shortcakes, in a medium bowl stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Make a well in center of flour mixture. In a small bowl combine buttermilk and egg yolk. Add to flour mixture all at once, stirring just until moistened.

2. Lightly coat a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray; set aside. On a lightly floured surface, pat or roll dough to 1/2-inch thickness. Using a floured 2- to 3-inch cookie cutter, cut dough into 4 desired shaped shortcakes, rerolling scraps as necessary. Place on prepared baking sheet. Bake in a 425 degrees oven for 7 to 8 minutes or until golden. Cool on a wire rack.

3. In a medium bowl beat cream cheese with an electric mixer on medium speed for 30 seconds. Gradually beat in yogurt and preserves until smooth.

4. Divide shortcakes among 4 dessert plates; top with fresh fruit and yogurt mixture. Serve immediately.
