    TexasKelly's Note:

    This is a GREAT summer dessert, from the July issue of Cooking Light magazine. I saw it on the cover and knew I had to make it. Blackberrys are kind of expensive here, so I just used blueberrys, and it was absolutely delicious. Also I didn't have buttermilk, so I made milk from dried milk, and to one cup of milk added 1 tbsp lemon juice, and it worked just fine.

      These are soo good! I nice patritic treat perfect for those summer months. The shortcakes were a little flat and slightly bland, but when you add the filling and the topping, they are wonderful.
