Default Anyone have "The Joy of Cooking" ? I need the shortcake recipe.

I have this cookbook but it's packed away in storage right now. I'm making raspberry shortcake for Simon's birthday party tomorrow but the shortcake recipe that I always use is in The Joy of Cooking. Since we're having company, I don't want to try out a new recipe, if you KWIM.

If you have it, could you please post the list of ingredients and the baking time and temp. (that won't violate copyright). I'll figure out the rest.

(If you feel like putting the directions in your own words, that'd be great but don't feel like you have to.)

Default Re: Anyone have "The Joy of Cooking" ?????? I need a quick recipe from there!!

I hope this is it...it's just the dough recipe? Its with the biscuit recipes, called ""fluffy biscuits or shortcake dough."

450 degrees for 10-12 min.

Sift together:
2 c. cake flour or 1 3/4 c. all purpose flour
2 1/2 t. baking powder
1 1/4 t. salt
1 T. sugar

Cut in:
1/8-1/4 c. butter

Then add:
3/4 c. milk or cream

Stir the milk gently into the flour mixture with a fork. Knead dough lightly on a floured surface for 1/2 min.

Does that sound familiar?

I never thanked you Kelly.

I was searching Google for this recipe because I got rid of this cookbook and this thread came up!

Oh, how funny! I was reading your OP thinking, I have Joy of Cooking, I can check. Then I saw my reply...from 10 years ago! We've been sharing life for a long time. I got mine for my wedding too, 2sunshines.

Mine was falling apart and so many pages were missing it wasn't worth keeping.

I do still have The Settlement Cookbook & The Silver Palate Cookbook, though. I need to get another copy of Joy of Cooking!

I got joy of cooking for a wedding gift too! From my best friend.

My mom got the joy of sex from her mother for her wedding gift. Awkward!!

Wow, I feel like I'm missing out on a good cookbook. I'll have to see if I can find it in the library.

I still haven't ordered the cookbook! Making this again for dh's birthday! Seriously, it's the best shortcake. Smother it in macetated raspberries and whipped cream.

I saw this thread come up and thought, she must be making that recipe again!

I opened my JOC the other day to the same worn out spot to make drop biscuits.
