Lemon-Berry Shortcakes

These shortcakes have a burst of lemony flavor baked inside. Use any assortment of berries you like—raspberries, blackberries, strawberries, or blueberries—as long as the total amount is 3 cups.

  • Yield: 5 servings (serving size: 1 shortcake)
  • Cook time: 15 Minutes
  • Prep time: 17 Minutes


  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons grated fresh lemon rind
  • 1/4 cup blueberry preserves or jam
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh strawberries, hulled and quartered
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh blueberries
  • 1 3/4 cups low-fat baking mix (such as Bisquick Heart Smart)
  • 1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon 1% low-fat milk
  • Cooking spray
  • 5 tablespoons frozen fat-free whipped topping, thawed and divided


1. Preheat oven to 425°.

2. Combine sugar and lemon rind in a small bowl; set aside.

3. Place preserves and water in a large skillet; cook over medium heat until preserves melt. Stir in 1 tablespoon sugar mixture, lemon juice, and berries. Cook 1 minute or until sugar dissolves.

4. Lightly spoon baking mix into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine baking mix, milk, and remaining sugar mixture, stirring just until dry ingredients are moist.

5. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; pat dough to a 1/2-inch thickness. Cut dough with a 2 1/2-inch biscuit cutter. Place biscuits on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray.

6. Bake at 425° for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden. Split shortcakes in half; spoon berries evenly over bottom halves of shortcakes. Dollop each serving with 1 tablespoon whipped topping, and top with remaining halves.
