strawberry-shortcake-rae

Happy National Strawberry Day!!  To celebrate I would like to share my Strawberry Shortcake recipe.  This recipe is for a homemade biscuit and it tasted great with nice juicy strawberries & whipped cream.  the biscuit recipe alone is a nice sweet biscuit, you can make them and just add a pad of butter or even an egg for breakfast.  A great biscuit recipe to keep on hand.

Strawberry Shortcake on Homemade Biscuits

Ingredients: 

For strawberries

1 pound strawberries

2 tablespoons sugar

 

For biscuits

2 cups all-purpose flour

3 teaspoons baking soda

1/2  teaspoon salt

3 tablespoons granulated sugar

3/4 cup skim milk, or what ever you have on hand

1/3 cup oil, I used canola

DIRECTIONS:

cut the strawberries, any shape or size you prefer, place them in a mixing bowl, add sugar and mix.  Add saran wrap on top of the bowl and place in the fridge until a syrup forms.  This step can be done a night before or a few hours before for best results.

Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees

grease a 8×11 inch baking dish

place all ingredients in a bowl, mix just until combined, do not over mix.

Drop 12 round balls of biscuit dough in the pan in rows of 3×4

Bake for 12- 15 minutes.

Cool the biscuits then cut and add strawberries and your favorite whipped topping.

Enjoy!!!
