Strawberry Shortcake: My Favorite Recipe
Here's their recipe for delicious strawberry shortcake biscuits:
2 1/3 c Bisquick baking mix
3 T butter, melted
1/2 c milk
3 T sugar
Pre-heat the oven to 425*. Stir all ingredients together until a soft dough forms. Use a large spoon to drop biscuits onto a greased baking sheet (usually can get 6, depending on how big you want them to be). Bake for 10-12 minutes until lightly browned.
**My addition: Before I put these into the oven, I sprinkle them with a little bit of a cinnamon-sugar mixture that adds just a touch of sweetness.
You'll also need, of course, some sliced strawberries, soaked in a healthy amount of sugar, whipped cream, and vanilla ice cream.
For a delicious end to any meal, begin by slicing the biscuit in half. Top the bottom half with strawberries, ice cream, then cool whip in that order. Place the top half of the biscuit onto the whipped cream. Add a bit more whipped cream and a top it all off with a few more sweetened strawberries.
Come back for seconds!
