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
1 pound strawberries
2 tablespoons sugar
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
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.
