I always looked forward to summer when my mom would make her Strawberry Shortcakes. They are so perfect for summer. Easy to make, fresh and loaded with strawberries.
Delicious. And topped with that fresh whipped cream – just decadent and Yum!
Mom used to make the biscuits with that boxed mix. Since I don’t use that anymore, this Mom’s Strawberry Shortcake is a little updated version of her recipe. But, I tried to stick as close as possible to her original. Grab my Fresh Buttermilk Biscuit Recipe here.
Mom used to cut the biscuit in half and smear a bit of butter across the cut part. Wow that was good! You can do that part too if you wish!
While you bake the biscuits the strawberries are macerating in the fridge. That’s just a fancy way of saying that they are turning into a nice syrup and softening. Oh, and if you have a family member who doesn’t care for strawberries (like my husband), you can do this recipe with raspberries or blueberries instead. They are just as good!
The definite key to Mom’s Strawberry Shortcake is the fresh whipped cream. Soft billowy layers of sweetened whipped cream. Ohhhhhh… It just tastes better than the squirty stuff from the store. So, make sure you take a little extra time to do that special touch. I promise you’ll be happy with it. And, it really doesn’t take that long.
