Cook Time: 12 minutes
Total Time: 12 minutes
- 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 cup cold butter
- 3/4 cup low fat buttermilk
- 4 cups light or fat-free whipped topping
- 5 cups fresh strawberries, sliced
Using a whisk, stir dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Cut in butter using a pastry blender until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Make a well in the center and add buttermilk. Stir until just moist.
Turn out dough on to a nonstick mat or floured surface. Knead gently two or three times then flatten or roll to a 3/4-inch thickness. Using a round cutter or rim of a glass, cut 12 circles from dough, re-rolling scraps where necessary. Sprinkle a little sugar on top if you like. Bake on a nonstick baking sheet for 12 minutes or until golden. Cool on a wire rack.
When cool, slice each shortcake in half crosswise. Divide whipped topping and strawberries among shortcake bases and place cap of shortcake on top.
Makes 12 shortcake desserts.
