You can’t go wrong with shortcakes, especially when they combine juicy pears, cranberries and apricots.  The added touch of oatmeal gives these scrumptious shortcakes a healthy benefit.

2 cups Original Bisquick® mix
1/3 cup quick-cooking oats
3 tablespoons packed brown sugar
1/2 cup milk
3 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
2 medium firm pears, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
1 cup fresh or frozen cranberries
1/2 cup orange juice
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 can (21 oz) apricot pie filling

1 Heat oven to 425°F. In large bowl, mix Bisquick mix, oats, brown sugar, milk and butter until soft dough forms. Drop dough by 6 spoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet. Sprinkle with additional brown sugar and oats if desired.

2 Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until light golden brown.

3 In 2-quart saucepan, heat pears, cranberries, orange juice and cinnamon to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer uncovered 3 to 4 minutes, stirring occasionally, just until cranberries pop. Stir in pie filling. Split warm shortcakes; fill and top with fruit mixture.

About 2sassygal

First of all, I love to cook...not every night, but weekends are the best time to cook. I am a animal lover, especially wildlife. My next vacation would be to South Africa. To get personal and close up to wildlife would be fascinating. I like to read suspense, thriller novels. Regarding television....I like some reality shows, crime shows, comedies. I like to look at a recipe from a cookbook and do my version of it.. usually the healthier choice. I am all about substitutions, if a recipe calls for a ingredient there are dozens of ingredients you can substitute for the called-for ingredient. I like summer because I love cooking outdoors, swimming. It's just the fresh air that makes everyone want to get outside and do something. I love the air especially after the rain.... that nothing compares to that.
