Ingredients

Shortcake

1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon freshly grated lemon zest
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/3 cup buttermilk
1 tablespoon large grain sugar

Fruit

1 1/2 cups fresh raspberries
1 cup fresh blueberries
2 tablespoons sugar

Topping

3/4 cup whipping cream, whipped
1 tablespoon powdered sugar

Directions

Heat oven to 375°F. Combine flour, 2 tablespoons sugar, baking powder, lemon zdst and nutmeg in large bowl; cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in buttermilk and egg just until moistened.

Knead on lightly floured surface 4 or 5 times until dough forms a ball. Roll out dough to 6 x 4 1/2-inch rectangle; sprinkle with 1 tablespoon large grain sugar. Cut into 12 (1 1/2-inch) squares with sharp knife. Place 1 inch apart onto ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 11 to 13 minutes or until golden brown.

Meanwhile, stir together raspberries, blueberries and 2 tablespoons sugar in large bowl.

Beat whipping cream in small deep bowl at high speed, scraping bowl often, until soft peaks form (45 to 60 seconds). Continue beating, gradually adding powdered sugar, until stiff peaks form (30 to 60 seconds).

Place 3 warm shortcake squares in each individual dessert dish; top with fruit and whipped cream.
