Pooltime shortcakes

Yields 10 servings



2 cups flour

½ TBS baking power

¼ cup sugar

1/3 cup butter, cut into small cubes

¾ cup Pooltime


1lb of pitted cherries

½ cup sugar

½ cup Pooltime

1 pint of whipping cream

1 TBS powdered sugar



  1. In a large bowl, sift all dry ingredients together.
  2. Using your hands or a food processor, cut in butter until you get a sandy consistency, then stir in beer.
  3. Knead lightly, then gather into a large shaped ball and wrap in plastic wrap.
  4. Refrigerate for a minimum of 1 hour before forming the dough.
  5. On a lightly floured surface, pat the dough into 1-1/2 inch thickness and cut with a biscuit cutter or desired shape.
  6. Place on lightly greased cookie sheet.
  7. Bake for 10-12 minutes at 400°F, or until golden brown.


  1. In a large saucepan, mix together cherries, sugar and Pooltime. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to medium. Cook until a nice, thick syrup has formed, about 10 minutes. Taste and add more sugar if needed.
  2. Meanwhile, in a mixer, mix together powdered sugar and whipping cream. Whisk at medium-high speed until the cream forms soft peaks.
  3. Break biscuits open and top with Pootime cherries and whip cream.
  4. Enjoy with a pint of Pooltime!
