berry shortcake...mmm....

Annie brought this yummy treat into my life about a year ago, and it is still one of my favorite desserts. It seems super fancy, but is really easy to make.

All you need is a box of heart smart bisquick and some berries. Make the shortcake according to the box directions, but instead of using sugar, I use Splenda. Then, you bake them, cut them in half, and put some berries and fat free whipped cream on top. For the berries, I like to cut them up into pieces and then put some lemon juice (just a squirt or two) and then some Splenda on it and let it sit for awhile to get all juicy. It is SOO good! This is a little higher in points than I might normally spend on dessert, but if I pair it with a low point dinner its a great combination! Also, I'll buy bags of frozen berries so that I have some on hand if I ever want to make this super delicious treat :)

i like to make a berry sauce with fresh strawberries and a little bit of tequila... i'm sure it works as well as lemon juice and splenda, though!
