(or biscuits if you leave out the sugar)
The beauty of this recipe is that you can use any type of berry or fruit in season. Peaches, blackberries, blueberries or raspberries make delectable shortcake.
2 c. sifted flour
1 T. baking powder
½ t. salt
¼ t. baking soda
2 T. sugar
6 T. butter
1 c. buttermilk
Blend dry ingredients, cut in butter until it resembles coarse meal. Add buttermilk and mix lightly, just enough to incorporate the ingredients. Pat into a loose ball, turn onto a floured board and roll out to about ½” thick. Cut with a biscuit cutter and place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 450 for 15 minutes.
Let cool a few minutes, split with a fork and layer with sweetened fruit and top with whipped cream.
