Triple Berry Shortcake Recipe







Shortcake:
2 cups all-purpose flour
4 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 stick unsalted butter
3/4 cup cream or half and half
granulated sugar
pinch of cinnamon optional mixed in with sugar
blueberries, blackberries, strawberries and raspberries
Beat butter and sugar together till fluffy. Add flour and baking powder, salt. In cupcake tins lined with paper cups, or dropping by heaping tablespoons full, sprinkle tops with sugar and Bake on 375 until browned. Cool. Assembly below.

Berry mixture :
2 cups of assorted fresh fruit, blueberries, blackberries mix with raspberry, or strawberries.... 1/2 cup of seedless preserves such as blackberry or raspberry, I put it in the microwave for 20 seconds for easier mixing
. Mix in with the fruit.
Top biscuit with whipped cream and sliced fruit.
