Roasted Balsamic Strawberry and Blueberry Shortcake

I have been intrigued by these roasted and grilled fruits, so far all I’ve ever done is grill up some pineapple.  I was ready to expand my horizons.  I teamed up with Maggie the Food Stylist and we came up with this recipe.  We started by going on-line and searching for some ideas. We found these recipes for roasted strawberries.

Recipe from leite’s Culinari

The roasted berries are savory and sweet. It punched a lot more flavor into each bite.  Sometimes the store-bought strawberries can be a disappointment, they look great but have no flavor. Roasting fruit extract the natural sweetness and caramelizes the juices.     We decided to make a shortcake dessert out of the berries.  I like to keep it simple and do what I know, and that’s Betty Crocker Original Bisquick just like mom used to make.

  • In medium bowl, stir 2 1/3 cup Bisquick mix, 1/2 cup milk, 3 tablespoons sugar and 3 tablespoons butter melted, until soft dough forms. On ungreased cookie sheet, drop dough by 6 spoonfuls.
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown.

Make some fresh whipping cream and garnish with mint.  A new twist to a classic dessert.
