Prep:
5 min.

 

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease.

Mix it Up
• Combine dry ingredients in a bowl with a pastry cutter or food processor with blade attachment.

• Cut in butter until mixture resembles a coarse meal. Do not over work dough. 

• Add buttermilk or alternative and egg or alternative and mix just until combined. 

•Turn dough onto a lightly flour board and pat until dough is 3/4" thick. Cut into rounds.

• Bake for 15-18 minutes until light golden brown. Makes 6 large or 12 mini shortcakes. 

• Let cool slightly. Slice in half and add strawberry slices. Top with whipped cream or dairy free whipped topping if desired.

Chef’s Notes:
The trick to making tender biscuits or shortcakes is not to over mix the dough. Small pebble sized pieces of butter will melt while baking, creating a flaky biscuit. I like to make this in in a bowl with an old fashioned pastry cutter and just mix until the dough comes together.
