  • 1
    Mix strawberries and 1 1/2 cups sugar. Let stand 1 hour.
  • 2
    Heat oven to 425º. 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.

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.
