I was going to make my shortcake out of Bisquick but decided at the last minute to make these. They are the best I've ever had! I heeded the advice of others and omitted the cream of tartar. I cut back baking powder to only 3 tsp. thought 4 tsp. was too much. I gently pulled mixture together after cutting in butter, with my hands in mixing bowl and instead of rolling and cutting, I formed into 12 gently formed balls. Flattened top just slightly and sprinkled with coarse sugar carefully cuz it tends to want to roll of the top. Just lightly pat into top so it stays put. They were great! Taste a little bit like shortbread. Very tender. I always use more sugar in my strawberries to create more of a juice. For the viewer that was wondering why theirs came out flat, check the expiration date on your baking powder, it is usually found on the bottom of the can. It doesn't stay fresh that long, so that might have been the problem. Hope this helps. Thanks Sara, this was delish!
