Strawberry Shortcakes

Strawberry Shortcakes

Serves 8

30 minutes or fewer

We couldn’t believe these tender shortcakes were both low-calorie and vegan.
  • 2½ cups sliced strawberries
  • 3 Tbs. sugar
  • 2 Tbs. lemon juice
  • 1¼ cups flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. sugar
  • ½ tsp. baking soda
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • 2 Tbs. vegan margarine, cut into small pieces
  • 1 6-oz. container plain soy yogurt
  • soy whipped cream

1. To make Filling: Combine strawberries, sugar, and lemon juice.

2. To make Shortcakes: Preheat oven to 450°F. Coat baking sheet with cooking spray. Whisk together flour, baking powder, sugar, baking soda, and salt in bowl. Rub margarine into flour mixture with fingertips until mixture resembles cornmeal. Stir in yogurt until soft dough forms.

3. Pat dough into ½-inch-thick square on floured work surface. Cut 4 biscuits with 2½-inch round cutter. Place on prepared baking sheet. Make 4 more biscuits from dough scraps. Bake 9 to 11 minutes, or until tops are golden.

4. Split biscuits, and set bottoms on plates. Spoon 3 Tbs. strawberries over each. Top with 3 Tbs. soy whipped cream. Top with biscuit tops, remaining strawberries, and a swirl of whipped cream.

Using low-fat Greek yogurt and butter, these came out well. The dough's consistency originally worried me (admittedly not being highly experienced in biscuits), but they were thick enough to cut and perfectly baked.
