Blueberry shortcakes with Blueberry Sauce

The best time of springs is the fresh fruits you get in the market and one among them is blueberries. Every time I enter Costco one thing that always gets into my cart is the blueberry muffins. I just cant express how much I love those muffins. But, today I decided to bake them but guess what when I was searching for the Recipe I came across blueberry shortcakes, those were just mouth watering to see and hence I dropped my pervious plan of baking muffins and started up with Delicious blueberry shortcakes.
This dessert is very easy to make. 
Dont worry if you have leftover sauce,its just great over Vanilla Ice-cream ..Trust mee Its yummm....Feels like  Heaven :)
Any one in for this dessert?
