Healthy Shortcake Recipes
Our first recipe is rustic Peach and Basil Shortcake.
This company-worthy shortcake is both beautiful and delicious. We love the unexpected flavor that basil brings to the table.
Brandied Peach Shortcakes
Flavors of citrus from the shortcakes complement the sweet, glazed peaches. Sandwich the peaches between two layers of shortcake and top with a dollop of the Greek yogurt mixture for a beautiful presentation. As for the brandy, one small "airline bottle" is enough for this spirited dessert.
Gingered Blueberry Shortcake
Spiced Shortcakes with Sautéed Pears
Strawberry Shortcake Jelly Roll
The key to tender low-fat shortcakes is to not overwork the dough; so pat it out instead of rolling it. A portion of the blueberries is cooked with sugar and cornstarch to form a blueberry glaze that binds the filling. This dessert is best with fresh berries.
