I've made this twice now - the first as per directions and the second with a few little differences (I used Splenda instead of sugar, using the whole 1/2 cup in the mix and none on the strawberries). Both times it was very well received. It's a little different than a traditional shortcake, more of a biscuit cake and very yummy!
