Is there anything better than a buttery shortcake paired with a warm berry sauce and a batch of fresh whipped cream? Honestly, we can't say for sure, but these sweet little treats make a strong argument that there isn't anything that comes close. For a fresh, summer treat, we highly recommend that you whip up a batch of these stunners.
Ingredients Needed:

For the shortcakes:
2 3/4 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 tbsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
Pinch of cinnamon
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
2/3 cup cold butter, cubed
1 1/2 tsp vanilla bean paste
1 tsp lemon zest
1 egg

For the blueberry sauce:
2 cups blueberries 
1 tbsp Lemon juice (about the juice of 1/2 lemon)
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tbsp cornstarch
pinch of cinnamon

Whipped Cream, for serving
