Super Shortcake

READY IN: 22mins
Recipe by Random Rachel

Delicious recipe from Taste of Home magazine. Makes a light, fluffy, buttery shortcake. Different from the other shortcake recipes in that it has sour cream in the dough. Awesome with some with strawberries and cream, or just some butter. I plan on replacing my biscuit recipe with this one. The recipe called for 2 tbsp sugar, but I increased it to 1/3 cup because I love things sweet. If you don't have sour cream, you can substitute 1/2 cup of soured milk.

The best shortcake I have ever tasted!! I just dropped these by heaping tablespoonful onto the cookie sheet and baked as directed. Worked very well.
