twd ~ Tender Shortcakes

Cathy of The Tortefeasor chose Tender Shortcakes for this week's Tuesdays with Dorie recipe.



Monday was a day from the devil. One of those days that will either make you cry or fight...forget the whole fight or flight. That theory was probably made up by a man who needed to be more in touch with his emotions.

Anyway...I found some lovely, ripe berries at the farmers' market perfect to top the Tender Shortcakes. I whisked the dry ingredients and cut the butter into it with the music up. Then I poured in the milk and stirred the batter. Batter? Not dough! Immediately I realized that I was quartering the recipe; everything but the milk. The batter tasted good so, refusing to be defeated but not wanting to start over, I pulled out a cupcake pan and made six sweet, biscuit muffin shortcakes. The little babies are sweet and doughy. Can't wait to make the real things!

Oh, I hate that kind of day. And they're NOT good days to bake on! I learned the hard way with my Classic Berry Tart from a few weeks ago. Your little shortcakes look great, though. They're perfect little rounds!

oh, but they are so pretty and perfectly round! I'd be interested to hear how they differ in texture from the "regular" recipe.

Good save of your shortcakes. They look like berry filled macarons.

I'm sorry that your Monday was from the devil! I hate those kinds of days, and I hope things are looking up as your week progresses. Your shortcakes look so sweet and perfect -- I'd never have known you were having a bad day from the looks of them.

Oh man, if I had a dime for every time I reduced every ingredient in a recipe except for one. Looks like you more than salvaged the situation though! They look great! Thank you for baking along with me this week!
