Monday, January 31, 2011 No Lie Low Sugar Strawberry Shortcake Recipe
If you're looking for a "not sweet" dessert this could be it.
One package of strawberries. Slice them up. Put a little honey on them, like a spoonful, and mix well. Cover it up and let it sit in the fridge.
Like, all day.
Make the biscuits right before you want to eat it. Ain't nothing like a piping hot biscuit with berries.
In a bowl mix
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
Melt 1/2 stick of butter in the microwave and then let it cool.
Add cooled melted butter to 1/2 cup buttermilk and stir. It will clump up, this makes the biscuits flaky. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix until it is just incorporated. Don't over mix.
Portion dough into biscuits, don't go crazy making them perfect. Pull off chunks and make 4-6. Bake in a 475 degree oven on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper for 8-10 minutes.
Put the biscuit on a plate, throw some strawberries over it and top with a spoonful of whole milk ricotta cheese.
So good! Light, refreshing, hot and cold - a definite option for those who don't like sugary sweet desserts.
