Strawberry Shortcake

Strawberry Shortcake has been around forever. Seriously, who doesn't like buttermilk biscuits sweet plump strawberries and homemade whipped cream. This dessert recipe is very easy and quick . You can make your own buttermilk biscuits, as we do at elegant affairs, but in consideration for all of those busy moms that simply don't have the time or patience, I suggest you buy the pop in the oven kind ( pilsbury biscuits). I will insist ,however, that you make your own whipped cream. Cool Whip just won't cut it. You can give each person a biscuit once completed or serve it up "elegant affairs "style. Once we assemble the dessert, we simple take out a small cookie cutter and create strawberry shortcake minis. The choice is yours....Allow me to inspire you create this delectable dessert for your friends and family. Good Luck !!!!!!


1 can (10.2 oz) refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
2 tablespoons melted butter
1/4 cup sugar
3 cups fresh strawberries
1/3 cup sugar

Whipped Cream

1/2 cup whipping cream
2 tablespoons sugar

1/4 teaspoon vanilla


Heat oven to 375°F. Separate dough into 5 biscuits. Dip tops and sides of each biscuit in butter; dip in 1/4 cup sugar. Place on cookie sheet. Bake 13 to 17 minutes or until golden brown.
Meanwhile, in medium bowl, mix strawberries and 1/3 cup sugar. Set aside.
In another small bowl, beat whipping cream and 2 tablespoons sugar with electric mixer on high speed until soft peaks form. Beat in vanilla. Assemble and serve
