Anything is good, in moderation. I cook because I love to and because I can share with those around me. I crochet for the same reason.

Do what you want to do, enjoy what you do and use it to touch those around you.

Shortcakes are not just for strawberries.  My father often had these for breakfast, topped with whatever fruit was in season.  These go really well with peaches, plums, etc.

1 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
2 Tbl Sugar
2 Tbl Butter
5 Tbl 1% Milk
2/3 cup fruit

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

Mix the fruit with sugar (not included in quantities above), if you like,  set aside.

In a small food processor, combine the flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg.

Pulse the butter into the dry ingredients until the mixture resembles crumbs.  Add the milk and pulse just until the mixture pulls away from the sides.

Divide into four pieces, shape into a circle that is about 1/2 inch thick.  Place on a cookie sheet lined with a silicone mat or non stick foil.

Bake for 8 - 10 minutes until golden brown.

Top with fruit.  Can also top with  milk, ice cream or whipped cream.
