This comes from Chic & Easy, a new show by Food Network. I made this tonight and it hardly took any time at all. The entire family ate it up.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix strawberries with 3 tablespoons sugar and refrigerate while juices develop, at least 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  3. Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, remaining 2 tablespoons sugar, and salt in a medium bowl. Add heavy cream and mix until just combined. Place mixture in an ungreased 8-inch square pan and bake until golden, 18 to 20 minutes.
  4. Place a metal bowl and beaters in the freezer during shortcake cooking time.
  5. Remove shortcake from pan and place on a rack to cool slightly. Cut into 6 pieces and split each piece in half horizontally.
  6. Mix all whipped cream ingredients in the metal bowl with metal beaters about 1 1/2 to 2 minutes.
  7. Spoon some of the strawberries with their juice onto each shortcake bottom. Top with a generous dollop of whipped cream and then the shortcake top. Spoon more strawberries over the top and serve.

wonderful! the only thing i did to make it easier was to use sourcream mixed with splenda brown sugar blend instead of whipping cream :)

yummy! I used 1/2 milk and 1/2 whipping cream. I also sprinkled some cane sugar on the top of the biscuits and baked at 350.

Delicious, delicious, delicious. This biscuit was perfect crispy on the outside and tender on the inside, with an amazing butter flavor. The biscuit sopped up the strawberry juice perfectly, while still holding its shape and never got mushy. We love strawberry shortcake and this one is a winner in our books. My dh was in heaven. Thanks for sharing this new family favorite invictus.
