OK, really lovely shortcake. I didn't want to make minor changes, had too. I have been trying to come up with some sweet things for my DH who needs to bring his cholesterol down. I followed it exactly as written except I used non dairy creamer. I was nervous that it would ruin it. It came out wonderful. Light, airy, perfectly sweetened, super easy. I served it with fresh strawberries and blueberries and lite whipped topping. Just great. Honey, didn't notice a thing. And he is the beaker of detection on things nonfat, sugar free, diet, missing out kind of stuff. I am so confident now that next time I am using Splenda. 5 stars from me!
Have made this a few times now.Still 5 stars! The best shortcake we have ever had! Wanted to add in a few thoughts... The recipe does not give detailed instructions on how to mix this. I am not very good making light pastry stuff. My pie crusts for example need work. Reading the reviews, it is important NOT to handle the dough much. The less the better. So I did things like whipping the egg in with the cream, added the dry ingredients and mixed really well before moving on, and I just used my fingers to the small pieces of cut up butter. Used my hands to gently mix in the end, with a quick roll out with my rolling pin. I followed the ingredients exactly. Did not cut out the cream of tarter as others suggested. Light, delicate, just great!!! Thank you.
