This is a fireside-ready version of classic shortcakes, perfect for camping. Instead, shape the shortcake dough around a skewer (or cleaned-up wooden stick) and cook it over the open flame. No, it won’t cook evenly—some parts of the shortcake will get charred, while the center will remain doughy and slightly undercooked—but that’s the charm of it all.
