DROOL!! This was such a good dessert! The only thing that I did wrong was add too much vanilla to the whipped cream, it was double strength vanilla and I did not see that until it was too late. And I also used Frozen strawberries. But It still turned out excellent! I would suggest to follow the recipe as is, it was wonderful with frozen strawberries, but I am sure it would be heavenly with fresh ones! Good luck and I hope you enjoy this one as much as our family did!
No one in my family really like this. I will keep looking for another recipe.
This is a hit with my family. I bake the shortcake as a whole shett the cut in half and decorate like a regular cake.
This was a great recipe! I made it when my future in-laws came to visit, and my fiance's dad, who is quite the baker, said it was the "best strawberry shortcake" he's ever had! I'll definetally make it again. I made it the night before which made assembly easy. I would use more strawberries and whip cream next time, as we used all of them for 4 of us. Thanks for a GREAT recipe!
We made this last night and it was delicious! I loved the recipe for the biscuits and will never go back! The only change we made was that we used whipped cream from the can instead of making it. I think vanilla ice cream was be a great addition, as other reviewers mentioned.
I only made the shortcake and strawberries part of the recipe and used vanilla ice cream instead of whipped cream. Absolutely delicious and will be the only strawberry shortcake I make from now on. I used fat free half and half since that's all I had at home and it still worked fine. You could probably use milk as well to replace the cream in the bread.
Oh my word.....if you're a strawberry lover like I am, make this now!!!! Sooooo goooood!!!!
The shortcakes really do melt in your mouth! This is such a great recipe. I pretty followed it exactly, except that I macerated the strawberries in a little triple sec along with the sugar. All my friends loved this dessert!
