Meal Planner Monday: Strawberry Shortcake
Look at these yummy berries Mom brought me last week... ...of course I made "Strawberry Shortcake" !
This is the classic biscuit recipe that I make:
6 Tbsp. margarine
2 cups flour
1 Tbsp sugar
3 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
3/4 cup milk
Cut shortening into flour, sugar, baking powder and salt using a pastry blender or fork until mixture looks like fine crumbs. Stir in milk (dough will be soft and sticky). Place and pat down in 9 x 9 ungreased pan. Bake 15-20 minutes at 350 degrees.
Serve with sliced berries and sweetened whipped cream (or milk or vanilla ice cream).
Sweetened Whipped Cream
Beat 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream and 1 Tbsp granulated or powdered sugar in a chilled bowl with an electric mixer on high speed until stiff.
I'd also like to try this recipe sometime for Whole Wheat Strawberry Shortcake ...--
And, for old times sake...Harpst clan you have to see this video! Good times!!
