So I made this shortcake the other day, because the strawberries we had on hand were getting a little soft. It was the perfect dessert; kinda light and cool, which is really nice when its hot out! Even though I'm not much of a baker, these came out so good and they were so easy to make that I thought I'd share my little recipe with you! Basically, all you need are strawberries, bisquick, sugar, milk and cool whip (I know, I know... those of you who know how to bake for real probably shudder at the thought of using bisquick and cool whip!) If you don't have fresh strawberries another fruit or even a jam will probably do nicely!
Don't mind the messy and cramped apartment kitchen, or the dinner on the stove!Ingredients:
- Strawberries (1 small clamshell)
- 2 1/4 cups of bisquick
- 2/3 cup of milk
- 1/4 cup of sugar
To make strawberry sauce: Wash, remove leaves and stems and finely slice fresh strawberries. lightly sprinkle with sugar and refrigerate until needed.
To make biscuits: Preheat oven to 450º F. Combine bisquick mix, sugar and milk. Stir and knead lightly. Drop on a greased cookie sheet for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown.
To assemble: cut biscuits in half, place a generous helping of strawberries and cool whip on biscuit, cover with other half. Enjoy!
