Summer Berry Shortcake with Sour Cream Biscuits
4 years ago

Summer Berry Shortcake with Sour Cream Biscuits

The sweetness of summer berries is incredibly delicious stuffed into a simple sour cream biscuit. This easy-to-make biscuit dough comes together in a snap because you just need to stir sour cream and milk into the works instead of laboriously cutting butter into the dough. This is an easier method than traditional recipes.

Use whichever ripe berries catch your eye while browsing your local farmer’s market, u-pick, or your backyard, or use a mix of a few different kinds. Strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, even experiment with berries you’ve never heard of before, like haskap berries. Different berries have different levels of sweetness, so use your best judgment and adjust the amount of sugar to suit your taste buds.

Dark Chocolate Sauce

Dark Chocolate Sauce

Commercial chocolate sauces are a pale imitation of the real thing and usually don’t include any real chocolate. An old-school batch of real chocolate sauce is easy to make, easy to use and an easy way to saturate any treat with lots of rich, true, chocolate flavour. Try not to eat too much of this sauce straight out of the jar!

Old-Fashioned Apple Pie

Old-Fashioned Apple Pie

My favourite dessert is a thick slice of just-baked pie, with apples fresh from our local orchard, and still warm from the oven. But I’m always careful to save a thick wedge because I believe apple pie is at its best the next morning for breakfast. I prefer an easy-to-make butter pastry crust. Its secret is frozen butter, which adds flavour and is much easier than shortening to “cut” into the flour.
