Recipe of the Week: Red, White, & Blue Shortcake

For this week's recipe, I've chosen a simple, yet lovely shortcake recipe from Betty Crocker. Doesn't it look fabulous? And even though it's a 4th of July recipe, I think this one is definitely fit to stick around for the entire summer!

1 1/2 quarts strawberries, sliced (6 cups)
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
4 2/3cups Bisquick mix
1 cup milk
1/2 cup chopped dried cherries
6 tablespoons granulated sugar
6 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
2 cups blueberries
3/4 cup whipping (heavy) cream
2 tablespoons granulated or powdered sugar

1. Mix strawberries and 1 1/2 cups sugar. Let stand 1 hour.
2. Heat oven to 425ºF. Mix Bisquick mix, milk, cherries, 6 tablespoons sugar and the butter until soft dough forms.
3. Gently smooth dough into ball on surface sprinkled lightly with Bisquick mix. Knead 10 times. Roll dough 1/2 inch thick. Cut with floured 3-inch star-shaped or round cutter. Place about 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown.
4. Stir blueberries into strawberries. Beat whipping cream and 2 tablespoons sugar in chilled medium bowl with electric mixer on high speed until stiff. Split shortcakes in half. Fill and top with berries and whipped cream.
