Scones & Shortcakes

Shortcake is a sweet cake or biscuit (in the American sense: that is, a crumbly bread that has been leavened with baking powder or baking soda). A scone is a single-serving quick bread/cake, usually made of wheat, barley or oatmeal with baking powder as a leavening agent and baked on sheet pans.

Shortcakes

This is absolutely my favorite recipe for a shortcake – the drop biscuit kind. Really almost a scone, and close in flavor to a cream biscuit. We hope for left overs after Three Berry Shortcake so we can gobble these up for breakfast. They may, at first glance, look like a Bisquick thing but believe me, they aren’t.

Shortcakes - a cross between a scone and a cream biscuit these are amazing.
