Here's a quick-and-easy summertime classic. The shortcake layer in this Lemon-Berry Shortcake recipe is tender and not overly sweet. Add some blueberries to the top for an extra-pretty finish to patriotic celebrations. —Meryl Herr, Overland Park, Kansas

Loved it, but it does take a lot more time to bake. It needed at least an hour. Otherwise very yummy. It reminded me of the shortcake I used to make as a girl.

Everybody loved this!! It was gone within a few hours of making it! The texture is perfect and just enough flavor without being too sweet. Planning to make it again this weekend!
