Ingredients

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • cup sugar

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ½ cup butter

  • ¾ cup canned pumpkin

  • 1 egg

Blueberry Filling:

  • ½ cup whipping cream

  • 2 tablespoons sugar

  • 2 (5.3 ounce) containers VOSKOS® Nonfat Blueberry Greek Yogurt

Fresh Blueberry Sauce:

  • 2 cups fresh blueberries

  • ¼ cup sugar

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Combine the whole wheat and all-purpose flours, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a bowl. Using a pastry blender cut in butter to resemble coarse crumbs. Whisk together the pumpkin and egg; add to flour mixture and stir until dough comes together.

  2. On a floured surface knead dough by gently folding and pressing until it just holds together. Pat dough out to 3/4-inch thickness. Using a floured 2-inch biscuit cutter cut out shortcakes; reroll scraps as necessary. Place shortcakes 1 inch apart on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden. Cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes. Serve warm shortcakes split and filled with Blueberry Filling and Blueberry Sauce (see Steps 3 and 4 below).

  3. Blueberry Filling: Combine whipping cream and sugar in a chilled mixing bowl. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until soft peaks form (tips curl). Fold together whipped cream and VOSKOS® Nonfat Blueberry Greek Yogurt. Serve immediately or chill up to 5 hours.

  4. Fresh Blueberry Sauce: Combine blueberries and sugar in a food processor and pulse until a chunky sauce forms. Transfer blueberry mixture to a small pan. Simmer for 2 minutes. Serve warm.
