Red, White And Blueberry Shortcakes

Shortcake

Ingredients:

1 can (16.3 Oz) Pillsbury™ Grands!™ Southern Homestyle refrigerated Buttermilk biscuits (8 biscuits)
2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
4 to 5 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 cup whipping cream
2 tablespoons powdered sugar
¼ teaspoon vanilla
1 pint (2 cups) fresh strawberries, sliced
1 pint (2 cups) fresh blueberries

Directions:

Heat oven to 375°F. Separate dough into 8 biscuits. Dip top and side of each in melted butter, then in granulated sugar. On ungreased cookie sheet, place 2 inches apart. Bake 13 to 17 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 5 minutes.

In small bowl, beat whipping cream until soft peaks form. Gradually add powdered sugar and vanilla, beating until stiff peaks form.

To serve, split biscuits; place on 8 dessert plates. Layer each with strawberries, blueberries and whipped cream.

HOW TO PREPARE YOUR FAMILY FOR A HURRICANE

Make a plan: Actually talk about it and write it down. Think of the different scenarios you could face and decide now, when you are not panicked, what you will do.  A website that’s great at helping families do this is www.ready.gov/hurricanes.

Make a kit: Those websites have information on how much water, food and other supplies you should have on hand in case of a hurricane.  As we learned from previous storms in Florida it’s good to buy those things now; before a storm is announced and shelves go bare.  Include a list of important phone numbers and entertainment for the kids such as books, coloring pages and board games.

Talk with your kids: Be honest and age appropriate. Let the kids help make plans and gather supplies.  If they’ve been through a hurricane before and have some anxiety about it, ask them what worries them and listen.  Practice deep breathing and progressive muscle relaxation to build up their self-soothing skills. Talk about the importance of following directions before the storm arrives.
