This turned out a light, crumbly biscuit that went very well with strawberries and cream. Easy, peasy and yummy.
Just what I was looking for. I didn't have a clean 1/3rd cup so used 1/4 cup shortning and for flavor added a heaping Tbs of butter. Just the right amount of sweetness. I may try rolling them out to make individual cakes in the future - realizing there will be more of a chance of the dough getting tough if I do so.
whipped it up in the food processor and had it in the oven in less than 2 minutes. I served it with berries that I had frozen from the summer. Perfect dessert. The shortcake was good later just plain as a snack as I was cleaning up the kitchen!!
