Strawberry Shortcake Biscuits

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Ecossaise

My mum made these biscuits, and they are delicious. I like them with the cream cheese filling from recipe 24672, and topped with strawberries and the whipped cream from recipe 410125 (filling, no mint). I do not recommend substituting margarine for butter, but it can be done in a pinch. I use low fat sour cream. I sometimes form 8 rough balls, flattened instead of rolling the dough and cutting rounds.

Wow, what a lovely shortcake recipe. We loved the biscuits prepared this way. Light, fluffy, crisp, crunchy, tender and very delicious with a lovely crumb. Thanks so much for sharing. The biscuits sopped up the beautiful strawberry juices perfectly. I'll be making these again. Made for What's on the Menu? tag game.
