Strawberry Shortcake with Drop Biscuits






Strawberry shortcake is an absolute favorite summertime dessert of mine. Strawberry season is in full bloom, so what better time to enjoy one of the well known desserts of summer. There are so many versions of strawberry shortcake I'm sure, but this is mine and what we enjoy in our home. I always look forward to having a bowl of chilled crushed strawberries served over a warm, fresh out of the oven biscuit and topped with a little dab of cool whip. Doesn't it just sound mouth watering!? Yum!

I make the same biscuits as my mom did growing up, she still makes them, that I look so forward to. I just add a little twist to them. They are so simple.

Here's the recipe.

Drop Biscuits for Strawberry Shortcake
2 1/4 cups Bisquick
2/3 cup milk
4 Tbsp honey
1/4 tsp cinnamon

Into a large bowl,
Combine all ingredients together and mix well. Place 6-8 large spoonfuls on greased baking pan. Bake at 450 degrees for 8-10 minutes. Yields 6-8 biscuits depending on the size you make them.




While your biscuits are baking, prepare your strawberries by cutting the caps off, washing, and cutting into 4 pieces or so. Place them all in a bowl and mash. Mix in a little sugar to sweeten for your liking.

When your biscuits are done, let them cool slightly, then enjoy the mashed berries over the biscuit. Be sure to add a dollop of of cool whip on the top. Enjoy!!
