Very Strawberry Shortcake

Very Strawberry ShortcakeUnlike the familiar little sponge cake, this is a sweet and tender biscuit filled with fresh strawberries that are laced with a splash of balsamic vinegar.

Recipe Ingredients:

Strawberry Filling
3 cups sliced fresh strawberries
2 tablespoons Splenda® Granulated No Calorie Sweetener
2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar

Shortcakes
2 1/2 cups reduced-fat biscuit mix
1 tablespoon Splenda® Granulated No Calorie Sweetener
1 cup plain fat-free yogurt
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Fat-free frozen whipped topping, thawed (optional)
Mint sprigs (optional)

Cooking Directions:

  1. Strawberry Filling Directions: Stir together strawberries, 1/3 cup Splenda® Granulated Sweetener and balsamic vinegar; let stand 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
  2. Shortcake Directions: Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C).
  3. Combine biscuit mix and 1/3 cup Splenda® Granulated Sweetener in a large bowl.
  4. Stir together yogurt and vanilla; add to dry ingredients, stirring just until moistened.
  5. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead 3 or 4 times. Pat dough to a 1/2-inch thickness. Cut with a 2 1/4-inch round cutter, reusing dough scraps, if necessary.
  6. Place shortcakes on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake 12 to 15 minutes.
  7. Serve warm with sliced strawberries. Garnish, if desired.
