How to make it

  • Combine blackberries and stir in 1/4 cup sugar then set aside. Sift flour, baking powder, salt and 1/3 cup sugar. Work butter into flour mixture with fingertips as you would for pie crust. Mix baking soda with buttermilk. Add buttermilk mixture and egg to flour mixture then blend lightly together. Place dough on a floured board and knead lightly. Roll out 3/4” thick. Cut into 2 1/2” rounds and place on a well-greased baking sheet. Brush tops with melted butter and sprinkle lightly with sugar. Bake at 450 degrees for 10-12 minutes. To assemble the shortcake split warm biscuits in two and butter them. Place sweetened berries between halves and on top of biscuit. Top with whipped cream if desired.

    Yes, any berry. My favorite is the blackberry but they are all awesome.

    I saw the blueberry one first - I guess strawberries would do for this, too, huh?
