This was a very yummy way to use up a bunch of strawberries that were sitting in our fridge. My method of prep was a bit different for the shortcake, I used the food processor for the dry ingredients, then added the butter (very cold, cubed, as this is the way I was taught to make biscuits). After processing the butter in I added the milk and processed it just until combined. I made 11 smaller shortcakes, some on a cookie sheet, some on a pizza stone. The ones on the cookie sheet got too dark on the bottom after only 10 minutes, the ones on the pizza stone baked perfectly at around 15 mins. (Just cut the bottoms off the cookie sheet ones, now I know for next time!) The whipped cream is so good in this, love the addition of the sour cream! Will def make these again!
Perfect little shortcakes! The food processer and stand mixer made it so fast and easy : ) I made 9 and baked at 425 for about 12 minutes. Love the vanilla added to the strawberries! Didn't do the real whipped cream because I didn't have any cream at the time, but the squirt stuff was okay in a pinch. I could see this being a great "company dessert" with the real whipped cream part!
Didn't make the cream but was wonderful.
amazing recipe. thank you made it for my wife and she fell outta the seat. she loves short cake and said it was the best she has ever had!
We really enjoyed these strawberry shortcakes. Easy to make and sooo delicious. DH really enjoyed them too. We used to order a similar dish at a restaurant that is now no longer in business. So glad to have this recipe handy since I have access to freshly picked strawberries at a local Farmer's Market. Made for Name That Ingredient tag, May, 2013.
The shortcakes were very good (though I made them by hand and not in the food processor) and they strawverry filling was great (though I ended up slicing all of the strawberries and not following the directions). Where I had issues was the amount of filling. I made a half batch of the shortcake as four cakes and a full batch of the strawberries--and I really only had enough strawberries for three shortcakes. I think I will make this again, but for me, it will be with half again as many berries for half of the shortcake. Thanks for a good recipe!
This was excellent! The only change I made was in using peaches instead of strawberries. The shortcakes came out sort of large so next time (and there definately will be a next time) I'll make them a little smaller so there will be more! Everyone loved the whipped cream too! Thank you for posting this recipe!
These were quite good but I found the shortcake itself a bit bland.
I only used the shortcake part of the recipe, but they turned out excellent! The only change I made was to used half whole wheat and half all-purpose flour to make them a little healthier. I baked them the recommended temp and time and they came out perfect for me. Maybe I made mine a little bigger? Anyway, they tasted fantastic and were still moist and soft inside. Will definitely make this again.
This was a snap to make and my kids loved it. Made a double recipe, no changes and they were lovely. Might bake slightly less time next time and may use parchment. Thanks for a good summer dessert!
