This recipe was originally created as part of our Spring For Flavor recipe feature.

Recipe Ingredients

For the shortcakes:

Smart Balance® Non-Stick Cooking Spray - Original
2 cups, plus 3 tbsp all-purpose flour
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
6 tbsp chilled Smart Balance® Blended Butter Sticks, cut into small pieces
1 1/4 cups Smart Balance® Fat Free Milk and Omega-3s
1 egg white, whisked
1 tbsp raw sugar

 

For the berries:

4 cups sliced strawberries
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 1/4 cups fat-free whipped topping

Recipe Steps

Preheat oven to 400°f. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.

Combine 2 cups of the flour, 1/4 cup granulated sugar, baking powder, baking soda and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a large bowl. Cut in chilled butter with a pastry knife until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Add the milk to the flour mixture, and toss gently with a fork to combine.

Place 3 tablespoons of the remaining flour on a work surface. Divide the dough into 10 equal portions. Gently form each portion into a round, tossing with a little flour to help shape the dough.

Arrange on the baking sheet. Brush the dough with egg whites, and sprinkle evenly with the raw sugar. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until the shortcakes are lightly golden. Cool on a wire rack for 10 to 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, combine the strawberries, 1/4 cup granulated sugar and lemon juice; toss to coat. Let stand for 15 minutes.

Split each shortcake in half; spoon about 1/3 cup strawberry mixture and 2 tablespoons whipped topping into each.
