- 1 package (7.5 oz) Chebe All Purpose Mix
- 1/3 cup granulated sugar
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 6 Tbsp chilled butter, cut into pieces
- 1 large egg, beaten
- 1 tsp vanilla
- zest and juice of one lemon - 1/4 cup of juice
- 2 Tbsp granulated sugar to sprinkle on top of biscuits before baking
Preheat oven to 400F
In large bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and zest.
Cut butter into small pieces and blend into the flour mixture. The mixture will look like course crumbs.
Mix in juice, beaten egg and vanilla. Knead the dough gently.
Chill dough for 20 minutes. Roll out chilled dough to 1/2 to 3/4 inch. Use a round biscuit cutter or another cutter of your choice.
Place on a parchment lined cookie sheet, sprinkle with sugar and bake for 18-20 minutes, until lightly browned. Insert toothpick in the center of the biscuits to test for doneness.
Once shortcakes are cooled, cut in half and fill with your desired filling: sliced strawberries, blueberries, raspberries or peaches. Add whipped cream or ice cream if desired.
