Strawberry Shortcake Recipe

As I've gotten older, I've realized how much of a sweet tooth that I have. I've realized that my favorite dessert out of pies, cookies, brownies, and shortcake was ultimately the shortcake. The shortcake that I like the best is the strawberry shortcake. I feel that the warm flaky biscuits and strawberries mix really well with the cream. The combination of the two flavors gives your taste buds a smooth and sweet taste. Here below is a quick and easy recipe to make strawberry shortcake:

@WillStarr thanks for stopping by and im glad this recipe reminded you of the one your mom use to make. Thanks for the suggest about Bisquick (:

This is a super-sounding recipe, and my mother used to make very similar shortcake.

If you want to cheat, Bisquick has a shortcake recipe on the box (but this sounds far better!)
