Berry shortcakes
Recipe adapted from Better Homes and Gardens

What you will need:

  • 2cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4teaspoon salt
  • 1/3cup butter
  • 1egg
  • 1/2           cup whipping cream
  • 1/4cup honey
  • 1teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4cup fresh or frozen* tart red cherries, pitted and chopped
  • 1/4cup fresh or frozen*blueberries, chopped

1.Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. 
2.For shortcakes, in a large bowl combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. In a small bowl combine egg, 1/2 cup cream. honey, 1/4 cup cherries, and 1/4 cup blueberries; add to flour mixture. Using a fork, gently stir until moistened and dough comes together.
3.On a floured surface, knead dough by gently folding and gently pressing it just until it just holds together. Pat dough out to 3/4-inch thickness. Using a floured 2 1/2-inch star cutter, cut out shortcakes; re-form scraps as necessary. If you can't get the stars to work, like me, then circles are just as good. :)
4.Place shortcakes 1 inch apart on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden. Cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes.
