Very Berry Shortcake

{image found here}

Since we've been celebrating quite often at our home lately, {but we try to stay away from lots of sugar...} here's one of my favorite, homemade summer recipes that lets us enjoy the natural, sweet things of life:

Very Berry Shortcake
adapted from Better Homes & Gardens Cook Book

2 c. strawberries, sliced
2 c. blueberries
2 c. raspberries
2 c. flour
1/4 c. sugar
2 t. baking powder
1/2 c. butter
1 egg, beaten
2/3 c. milk
1 c. whipping cream, whipped (with 2 T. added sugar)

In a small bow stir together the strawberries & 1/4 c. of the sugar; set aside. Stir together remaining flour, sugar & baking powder. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Combine egg & milk; add to flour mixture. Stir just to moisten. Drop dough into 8 mounds on an ungreased baking sheet; flatten each mound with the back of a spoon until about 3/4 inch thick. Bake in a 450 degree oven about 10 minutes or until golden. Cool & cut shortcakes in half horizontally. Spoon berries & whipped cream over bottom layers. Replace top of shortcake & ENJOY!

P.S... For all of you faithful followers... Do not fear. Although the comment quota was not achieved the quinoa recipe will be revealed. Thou shalt not be punished. :)
