      PanNan, this recipe was so much fun to make! Your directions were simple to follow and I had excellent results! From the shortcake to the whipped cream, every bite was a taste treat! This shortacke has a nice sweetness to it that other shortcakes seem to miss. The strawberry filling w/ the added vanilla extract was sensational! The whipping cream with the added, not only confectioner's sugar, but also sour cream was incredible! This is a dessert that would definitely be considered "Company Worthy" in my book! Thank you so much PanNan, for bringing this wonderful recipe to Zaar!

      This is a great dessert that needs a couple of modifications to make it the best.

      I'll say right off the bat that the cooking time or temperature is too high. I cooked ours 15 minutes then checked it and the shortcake was already overdone... dark/slightly burned on the bottom and just a little too dark on the top. But I sliced off the very bottom and it was still a great dessert.

      This is what I would do to improve it...
      1) Make smaller cakes (I would make about 9 cakes out of the recipe as written).
      2) Make more berry mixture. I would use about 50% more berries and adjust the recipe accordingly (we ran out of berries... better too much than not enough).
      3) Bake on 400 degrees F, check at 11 minutes and add a little time if necessary.

      This recipe is a winner! I only changed the method of preparation, not the ingredients. I put all the dry ingredients directly into my sifter, and sifted them once into the bowl to make the shortcakes lighter. I cut in the cold butter with a pastry blender (didn't want to drag out the heavy mixer) until the mixture resembled coarse meal. Then I added the milk and mixed the dough with a butter knife (this keeps you from over handling the dough). I followed the filling part of the recipe exactly and added canned whipped topping instead of the whipped cream in the recipe. They turned out delicious!
