1. Old-Fashioned Strawberry Shortcakes

    Ingredients

    3 1/2 cups halved strawberries, divided 
    … 1/3 cup sugar 
    1/3 cup orange juice 
    2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    1 teaspoon lemon juice
    1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
    3 tablespoons sugar 
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    1/4 teaspoon baking soda
    1/8 teaspoon salt
    3 tablespoons chilled stick margarine or butter, cut into small pieces
    1/2 cup low-fat buttermilk
    Cooking spray
    6 tablespoons frozen reduced-calorie whipped topping, thawed
    Whole strawberries (optional)

    Preparation

    Combine 1 cup strawberry halves, 1/3 cup sugar, orange juice, vanilla, and lemon juice in a bowl, and mash with a potato masher. Stir in 2 1/2 cups strawberry halves. Cover and chill.

    Preheat oven to 425°.

    Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour, 3 tablespoons sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl; cut in margarine with a pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add buttermilk, stirring just until moist (dough will be sticky).

    Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead lightly 4 times with floured hands. Pat dough into a 6 x 4-inch rectangle. Cut dough into 6 squares. Place 1 inch apart on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Bake at 425° for 12 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.

    Split shortcakes in half horizontally using a serrated knife; place each bottom half on a dessert plate. Spoon 1/4 cup strawberry mixture over each bottom half. Top with shortcake tops; spoon 1/4 cup strawberry mixture over each top. Top each serving with 1 tablespoon whipped topping; garnish with whole strawberries, if desired.
