Sweet Biscuit Shortcakes

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons cold butter
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream


  • 2 pints strawberries hulled and sliced
  • 12 oz blueberries
  • 1 lemon zested and juiced
  • 1/4 cup sugar

Whipped Cream

  • 1 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons sugar


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a medium-size mixing bowl, stir together flour, powdered sugar, baking powder and salt. Use a pastry cutter to cut in cold butter until mixture resembles cornmeal. Stir in the milk and heavy cream until a sticky dough forms.
  • Use a dinner spoon to scoop spoonfuls of dough onto the prepared parchment-lined baking sheet, leaving about 2-inches between each.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for about 15 minutes, until tops begin to turn a golden brown. Remove from oven and cool completely on a wire rack.
  • Meanwhile, either combine the berries into one bowl and stir together with lemon zest, lemon juice and 1/4 cup sugar, or keep the berries separate and divide the lemon zest, lemon juice, and sugar amongst the different berries.
  • Whip the heavy cream with 2 TB. sugar using either a hand or stand mixer until the cream forms stiff peaks.
  • Serve in mason jars or glass cups layering with a biscuit on bottom with cream, then berries, and repeat until jar or glass is full. Alternatively, you can serve a biscuit on a plate topped with fresh cream and berries.
