Expert Tips

Use frozen whipped topping, thawed, instead of the whipping cream and sugar.

Before baking the shortcakes, cover and refrigerate the cut dough on the cookie sheet for up to 4 hours, or wrap and freeze for up to 48 hours. Bake as directed.

Garnish with toothpicks that have miniature American flags.
