A Mother’s Day Treat

Happy Mother’s Day!

I follow the blog On Sutton Place. Ann Drake who writes it is quite an inspiration and she gave me permission to post one of her recipes. It is called Sour Cream Shortcake Bisquits. Not only is it delicious, it is quite delectable looking, and you probably have almost all of the ingredients on hand already. The only thing that you may need to purchase is sour cream.

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

In a large bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder,baking soda. salt, and sugar.

Cut in the butter with a pastry blender. (or if you don’t have a pastry blender you can do as I did, cut it in by using 2 knives. Tha’s the old fashioned way).

Stir in the sour cream and milk.

It should look “shaggy” at this point.

Spread it out on a cookie sheet until it is one inch thick. Sprinkle with sugar.

Bake for 12-15 minutes, watching it closely near the end. You want the edges to be lightly browned.

Cool slightly.
Cut into bisquits. You may have a bisquit ciutter. I used a glass. You can also serve it rustic by just breaking it into bits. it tastes great no matter what!

You may want to add a dollop of whipped cream. Also, I add some sweetener to the strawberries after I cut them up and let them set a bit.

I hope you all have a wonderful day today!
