A lot of times I just use Bisquick® biscuits for my shortcake (or even store-bought, if I'm in a hurry), but I didn't have any Bisquick on hand, so I made my biscuits from scratch. They're pretty much just a buttermilk scone (I seem to be doing a lot of those lately!). Here's the recipe:Ingredients
2 c. flour
1/2 c. sugar
1 Tbsp. baking powder
4 Tbsp. salted butter, chilled
3/4 c. - 1 c. buttermilk
1 Tbsp. vanilla extract
In a food processor, pulse together flour, sugar and baking powder. Add in butter and pulse until crumbly. Pour mixture out into a medium bowl.
In a separate small bowl, combine buttermilk and vanilla. Slowly start pouring the vanilla buttermilk mixture into the flour mixture, stirring constantly just until dough comes together in a sticky ball. (You may not use all the buttermilk.)
Divide into 6 pieces and place on a greased baking sheet.
Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes until toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Cool completely before slicing for strawberry shortcake.
