I'm still picking about 4 cups of strawberries a day
from my little garden in the back yard!
And I have to thank Brian for the idea of shortcake!
Of course! Nothing better than fresh fruit desserts!
Betsy's Buttermilk Biscuits
4 c flour
1 t salt
1 T baking powder
2 t baking soda
2 T sugar
Whisk above ingredients in a medium sized bowl.
With a pastry cutter, cut in
1 c vegetable shortening.
Add 1 3/4 c buttermilk and stir with a fork
just until combined. Add more milk if needed
to have it all come together.
With floured hands, pat out onto floured board 1 1/2" thick
or straight onto a cookie sheet covered with
parchment paper. Cut into 12 squares.
Sprinkle with a little sugar/cinnamon mixture.
Bake 375 for 20 minutes. Check center biscuit
by lifting up the top layer to make sure it is
baked through in the middle.
After cooled, slice and layer with fresh sugared
strawberries and real whipped cream.
