Strawberry Shortcake

June/July 2006

Your rating: None Average: 3.9 (56 votes)

Besides succulent fresh, ripe strawberries, the key to a great strawberry shortcake lies in the quality of the biscuit. And this one is top-notch. These tender, sweet buttermilk biscuits are made with a blend of cake flour and whole-wheat flour and lightened by substituting reduced-fat cream cheese for some of the butter. As a delicately tangy alternative to whipped cream, we use a blend of cream and reduced-fat sour cream.

So so healthy recipe

I don't like really sweet shortbread and try to stay away from sugar as much as I can. So when I saw this recipe (yes, there's sugar but not as much as other recipes) I was excited to make it. They did not raise or puff up at all. It may have been that I kneaded the dough too much. But it was on the dry site and took some kneading action to get it to stick together. I may have rolled it out too thin too. I couldn't find non-fat buttermilk so I used low-fat instead. I don't think that would have made a difference in how they looked.

Sorry to say they are awful

These do not taste good at all. I'm a big fan of Eating Well and other healthy versions of old favorites, but these are just not good. And the whipped/sour cream tastes rotten. I served it to a big group and no one had anything positive to say. Don't waste your time! Angel food cake would be a much better alternative and much healthier, too.

Lower in fat
