Updated Nov 26, 2010

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 quarts (6 cups) strawberries, sliced
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 4 2/3 cups baking mix
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup chopped dried cherries
  • 6 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 6 tablespoons margarine or butter, melted
  • 2 cups blueberries
  • 3/4 cup whipping (heavy) cream
  • 2 tablespoons granulated or powdered sugar

Steps

  • 1
    Mix strawberries and 1 1/2 cups sugar. Let stand 1 hour.
  • 2
    Heat oven to 425°. Mix baking mix, milk, cherries, 6 tablespoons sugar and the margarine until soft dough forms. Turn dough on surface lightly dusted with baking mix; gently roll in baking mix to coat. Shape dough into ball; knead 8 to 10 times.
  • 3
    Roll dough 1/2 inch thick. Cut with floured 3-inch star-shaped or round cutter. Place about 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown.
  • 4
    Stir blueberries into strawberries. Beat whipping cream and 2 tablespoons sugar in chilled medium bowl with electric mixer on high speed until stiff. Split shortcakes in half while hot. Fill and top with berries and whipped cream.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Use frozen whipped topping, thawed, instead of the whipping cream and sugar.
  • tip 2
    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.
  • tip 3
    Garnish with toothpicks that have miniature American flags.
