Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon cold butter
  • 1/4 cup 2% milk
  • FILLING:
  • 1-1/2 cups thinly sliced peeled tart apples
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • TOPPING:
  • 1/3 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon sugar

Directions

In a small bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt; cut in butter until crumbly. Stir in milk just until moistened. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead gently 3-4 times.
Roll out into an oval, about 1/2 in. thick. Using a floured 2-1/2 -in. biscuit cutter, cut out two circles. Place 1 in. apart on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray.
Bake at 425° for 10-15 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on a wire rack.
In a small saucepan, combine the filling ingredients; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered for 3-4 minutes or until apples are tender and sauce is thickened. Remove from the heat; cool slightly.
In a small bowl, beat cream until it begins to thicken. Add sugar; beat until stiff peaks form.
To assemble, split shortcakes in half. Place cake bottoms on dessert plates. Top with apple mixture and whipped cream. Replace shortcake tops. Yield: 2 servings.
