Blueberry-Strawberry Shortcakes

Let's give an iconic summer dessert an extra fruity boost with this blueberry-strawberry shortcake! It's perfect for all your backyard summer parties.


Shortcakes Flour White sugar Baking powder & salt Butter Buttermilk Plus, our berries, Grand Marnier (optional), orange zest and cinnamon for the fruity topping.


Toss strawberries, blueberries, sugar, Grand Marnier (if using), orange zest and cinnamon together. Let sit for at least 20 minutes or up to a day.


Stir together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Add the grated butter and stir just until the butter is incorporated.


Pour buttermilk on top of flour mixture. Stir just until combined -- you don't want to overwork the dough. The dough will look crumbly like so.


Turn the dough out onto a floured surface. Gently use your hands, to combine the dough and pat the dough into a 1-inch-thick rectangle.


Fold the left side to the middle and then the right side on top like folding a letter to create more flaky layers.


We flatten the folded dough, rotate and repeat again three times. This helps create lots of wonderful layers.


We cut our the dough into circles with a cookie cutter, brush with more buttermilk and bake in a 450-degree oven.


As the last step, we whip together heavy cream, sugar and vanilla -- just like that, we have our decadent whipped cream!

Now we assemble the shortcakes and enjoy every delicious bite of this perfect summer dessert! Everyone will love this fruity treat.
