  • 4 cups strawberries, hulled and sliced
  • 1 cup plus ½ Tbsp. Simple Truth Organic™ Granulated Sugar, divided
  • 2 1⁄2 cups Bisquick Baking Mix
  • 2⁄3 cup Simple Truth Organic™ 2% Reduced Fat Milk
  • 3 tablespoons Simple Truth™ Unsalted Butter, melted
  • 2 1⁄2 pints containers fresh blueberries

Directions

  • Mix strawberries and ½ cup sugar. Let stand 20 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 425°F.
  • Mix Bisquick, milk, 3 tablespoons sugar and the butter until soft dough forms. (Use more Bisquick, if needed to keep from sticking)
  • Gently smooth dough into ball on surface sprinkled lightly with Bisquick mix. Knead 10 times and roll dough ¼" thick. Cut with star-shaped cutter. Place about 1" apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Stir blueberries into strawberries.
  • Using an electric mixer, beat the whipping cream and 2 tablespoons sugar on high speed until stiff.
  • Divide half of the shortcakes on individual plates, top with berries, and then top with the other star half. Add a dollop of whipped cream on top. Serve immediately.
