Shortcakes

Yield Makes 8 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 cup cold butter, cut into pieces
  • 1 cup buttermilk

How to Make It

  1. Combine first 4 ingredients in a large bowl. Cut in butter with a pastry blender until mixture is crumbly. Gradually add buttermilk, and stir with a fork until a soft dough forms.

  2. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; pat dough into a 1-inch-thick disk. (Dough will be sticky. Dust hands with flour as needed.) Cut disk into 8 wedges. Place wedges on a lightly greased baking sheet.

  3. Bake at 425° for 13 to 15 minutes or until bottoms are golden and tops are lightly browned. Remove to wire racks to cool.
