The Perfect Shortcake Recipe

In a previous post, we used the innovative idea of our own homemade all-purpose baking mix using our fresh soft white wheat flour. Our soft white wheat flour is a perfect pairing for this all-purpose baking mix. This flour is of a sweeter variety and produces a tender crumb perfect for biscuits, pancakes, waffles, sweet breads, and other pastries. ____________________________________________________________

These are drop biscuits, meaning they are dropped from a spoon. There is no kneading or cutting required. These biscuits are incredibly easy to prepare, taking less than 2 minutes to prep for the oven. The recipe creates amazingly tender biscuits with a very mild whole wheat flavor.

Biscuits are widely popular and are the cornerstone of some of our favorite foods. While they can be extremely versatile, they rely on only a few ingredients and techniques. Why do we bring this up? When this is the case, quality of ingredients is of the utmost importance. A great biscuit will be made with the best ingredients. What makes our biscuits so great is our fresh, farm-to-you flour.  There is an incredible flavor in our fresh milled flour that will make these biscuits shine. 

The crisp exterior and tender crumb of these biscuits make them perfect for all your favorite meal times! Biscuits with gravy or biscuits with homemade jam could not get better with this easy biscuit recipe on hand! With the spoils of summer, we could not stop ourselves from using our perfect biscuits to create a base for a berry or stone fruit shortcake. In our berry or stone fruit shortcake (recipe below), we layer our perfect biscuits with market fresh fruit and freshly whipped cream. Yum!

I agree with Michelle. Under “How to Make Biscuits,” there seems to be a step missing about how to actually MAKE the biscuits.

Looks divine. There seems to be a step missing between 4 and 5 – forming biscuits. Can you add that in? thx
