Very Strawberry Shortcake
Unlike the familiar little sponge cake, this is a sweet and tender biscuit filled with fresh strawberries that are laced with a splash of balsamic vinegar.

Recipe Ingredients:
Strawberry Filling
3 cups sliced fresh strawberries
2 tablespoons Splenda® Granulated No Calorie Sweetener
2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar

Shortcakes
2 1/2 cups reduced-fat biscuit mix
1 tablespoon Splenda® Granulated No Calorie Sweetener
1 cup plain fat-free yogurt
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Fat-free frozen whipped topping, thawed (optional)
Mint sprigs (optional)

Cooking Directions:
1 – Strawberry Filling Directions: Stir together strawberries, 1/3 cup Splenda® Granulated Sweetener and balsamic vinegar; let stand 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
2 – Shortcake Directions: Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C).
3 – Combine biscuit mix and 1/3 cup Splenda® Granulated Sweetener in a large bowl.
4 – Stir together yogurt and vanilla; add to dry ingredients, stirring just until moistened.
5 – Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead 3 or 4 times. Pat dough to a 1/2-inch thickness. Cut with a 2 1/4-inch round cutter, reusing dough scraps, if necessary.
6 – Place shortcakes on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake 12 to 15 minutes.
7 – Serve warm with sliced strawberries. Garnish, if desired.
Makes 12 servings.
