Vegan Strawberry Shortcake

I know that fall is right around the corner, so we had to have another swing at summer! Enter: Vegan Strawberry Shortcake from http://hellyeahitsvegan.com/......thank you!


Vegan Strawberry Shortcake

strawberries or your favorite ripe berries, sliced
vegan whipped cream

2 c flour
2 tbsp sugar
1 tsp baking powder
¼ c vegan margarine
½ c unflavored or vanilla soy milk
¼ c applesauce

Lightly grease a baking sheet and preheat oven to 425ยบ. In a large mixing bowl, mix together flour, sugar and baking powder. Cut in margarine until pea-sized. Stir in applesauce and soy milk. Divide dough into 9 portions using an ice cream scoop, dropping them onto baking sheet. Bake for about 15 minutes, or until golden.

Slice off the top of each biscuit (or don’t) and add a dollop of of whipped cream. Top generously with berries, and remember why you love summer.

If you eat them straight out of the oven, be aware that the heat may melt the whipped cream, so the presentation may not hold for very long. That never deters me, though! If you somehow manage to have leftovers, briefly warm the biscuits in a conventional or toaster oven before serving.
