These were delicious! I 've tried many "shortcake" recipes, this one was the best. 1/4 sugar on the strawberries is plenty! The jam added a nice touch as well.
What a terrific recipe Lumberjackie. We enjoyed our strawberry shortcake very much. The biscuits were perfect, light, tender, fluffy and crisp on the outside. What a great Father's Day dessert this was. Quick and very easy to make. My dh was in flavor heaven. Thanks so much for sharing your lovely recipe.
Gorgeous - strawberries were a little sweet, maybe add some alcohol next time. I added some mascarpone to the cream to offset the sweetness. Biscuits needed a few more minutes (covered) to cook
10 stars just for the memory of my Grandma's house in the summer and her strawberry shortcake made with sweet biscuits. I just wish she were alive to taste your recipe for the strawberries. FANTASTIC with the vanilla and marmalade(used Orange). Thanks so much for posting this terrific recipe. BTW, I mashed the strawberries instead of slicing--Grandma said "they're sweeter that way." :-)
