Ingredients

  • 1 quart (4 cups) strawberries, sliced
  • 1/4 cup sugar

  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 425°F. In large bowl, mix strawberries and 1/4 cup sugar; set aside.
  • 2
    In medium bowl, stir Bisquick™ mix, milk, 3 tablespoons sugar and the butter until soft dough forms. On ungreased cookie sheet, drop dough by 6 spoonfuls.
  • 3
    Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Meanwhile, in small bowl, beat whipping cream with electric mixer on high speed until soft peaks form.
  • 4
    Split warm shortcakes; fill and top with strawberries and whipped cream.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    This particular strawberry shortcake recipe uses Bisquick™ for an easy, flaky shortcake shortcut that doesn’t skimp on taste. If you’re looking for an all-from-scratch recipe, try our Homemade Strawberry Shortcake.
  • tip 2
    A “short” cake has a high ratio of butter to flour and sugar. Stir the dough just until the dry ingredients are moistened and a soft dough forms. The shortcakes shouldn’t stick to the pan, but you can use baking parchment or a silicone baking mat if you’d like.
  • tip 3
    Mixing sugar with the fruit, whether you stick with summer-favorite strawberries or play with juicy peaches and blueberries or raspberries and plum wedges, is a process called “macerating.” Macerating is similar to marinating, but it’s done with fruit—sometimes letting the fruit sit in flavored liquors, vinegars or syrups—or by sprinkling the fruit with sugar. The sugar draws the moisture out of the fruit, creating a fruity, sweet syrup.
  • tip 4
    The first step in making a successful whipped cream for this Bisquick™ Strawberry Shortcake dessert is to refrigerate the bowl (a deep metal one works best) with the cream and the mixer beaters. The colder the cream, the faster it will whip up—but make sure you stop when it becomes stiff enough to form soft peaks.
  • tip 5
    Flavor the fruit or cream with 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon vanilla or 1 to 2 teaspoons orange liquor. When whipping the cream, be sure to add liquid when it starts to form soft peaks, or the cream might be too loose.
