The Original Bisquick® Strawberry Shortcakes

READY IN: 22mins




  • In medium bowl, stir together strawberries and 1/2 cup sugar; set aside for about 1 hour.
  • Heat oven to 425°F
  • In another medium bowl, stir Bisquick® mix, milk, 3 tablespoons sugar, and melted butter until a soft dough forms.
  • Drop the dough by rounded tablespoonfuls into 6 mounds onto ungreased cookie sheet; dust with sugar.
  • Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Meanwhile, in a chilled small bowl whip the cream, adding a drop or two of vanilla and a teaspoon of sugar. Beat with an electric mixer on high speed until soft peaks form.
  • Serve one of two ways:.
  • 1. Split warm shortcakes; fill and top with strawberries and whipped cream, or
  • 2. Break up one biscuit per person into big pieces into a dessert bowl. Ladle strawberries over the biscuit; add a dolop of whipped cream.
  • COOK'S TIP: Alternatives to strawberries could include raspberries, blueberries & peaches, and my favorite, apricots & honey (Soak dried apricots in warm water for 1 hour; chop fine. Gently toss apricots with honey and let stand awhile to blend flavors. Serve over shortcakes.).
