Ingredients

3 c
sliced fresh strawberries
2 Tbsp
sugar
1 2/3 c
all-purpose flour
1 Tbsp
sugar
2 tsp
baking powder
1/4 tsp
baking soda
3 Tbsp
margarine or butter
1
beaten egg
1/2 c
buttermilk
nonstick cooking spray
2 c
frozen fat-free whipped topping, thawed or 1.3 ounce envelope whipped dessert topping mix
fresh strawberry fans (optional)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Combine sliced strawberries and the 2 tbsp. sugar. Cover and let sit in refrigerator at least 1 hour.
2
In a mixing bowl, stir together flour, 1 tbsp. sugar, baking powder, and baking soda. Using a pastry blender, cut in margarine or butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Combine egg and buttermilk. Add to flour mixture all at once, stirring until combined.
3
Drop dough from a tablespoon onto an ungreased baking sheet, making 8 mounds.
4
Bake in a 450 degree oven for 7 - 8 minutes or until golden. Trasfer shortcakes to a wire rack and cool about 10 minutes.
5
Meanwhile, if using topping mix, prepare according to package directions using skim milk. To serve, cut shortcakes in half horizontally. Spoon half of the strawberries and one-fourth of the whipped topping over bottom layers. Replace tops. Spoon remaining strawberries and topping onto each shortcake (or spoon strawberries around shortcake). If desired, garnish with a strawberry fan.
