problem with strawberry shortcake on a stick

marlakash | Sep 10, 2009 04:59 AM

we just returned from a long hike up in the mountains and i tried making shortcake on a stick. the problem was that when we placed our sticks over the fire, the dough just melted and sort of "oozed" off the stick, falling straight into the hot flames :(
i was using this recipe:, substituting creme fraiche for the cream. the dough was a very biscuit-like consistency - not too dry and not too sticky. what did i do wrong?
my kids ended up eating raw dough, which they claimed tasted like "yummy porridge"...
