The Original Bisquick® Strawberry Shortcakes

The Original Bisquick®  Strawberry Shortcakes created by frostingnfettuccine

The original Old Fashioned Shortcake recipe appeared on the first Bisquick® box in 1931. It's said that an advertising slogan promised – “Here’s the Kind of Strawberry Shortcake Your Husband Will Rave About.” Shortcakes are the sweet cousin of the dinner bisquit, and these easy-to-prepare treats have stood the test of time in my family. It started with my mom who made her Bisquick® strawberry shortcakes with her garden grown strawberries and REAL homemade whipping cream. Some thirty years later my sistes and I are still baking up these sweet treats.

ingredients

directions

  • 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.).

    I had to make these a little bit larger than a tablespoon to make the 6 shortcakes. They cut and stacked nicely with the whipped cream and strawberries though! Not too crumbly they tastes great with the strawberries!
