1850s Strawberry Shortcake
— This recipe celebrates the beginning of summer with all the luscious flavors you expect from this all-time favorite dessert, but in a healthier and easier way. The biscuits are made better-for-you with canola oil instead of butter and half whole-grain flour. They are simple drop biscuits; no rolling or dough-cutting required. And the whipped cream topping is lightened with Greek yogurt for a subtle tanginess that beautifully complements the fresh berries.
Old Fashioned Strawberry Shortcakes — Shortcake is really a rich baking powder biscuit; in this case, a very rich drop biscuit with a high portion of butter and two egg yolks. You can’t get more old-fashioned than that. And, as they could only gild a lily in the good old days, I suggest you butter the biscuits, too. You haven't lived until you've eaten shortcake this way - and, very important, straight from the oven.
