Baking Tip

For individual-sized shortcakes, cut using a 3-inch biscuit cutter. For a traditional-sized shortcake, pat dough into an 8- or 9-inch cake pan.

Baking Tip

Roll pastry dough outward from the center and from the center inward with a floured rolling pin. Rotate and repeat until it's 2 inches wider than your pie plate.
