Notes









Tips

Expert Tips

  • Enjoy a summer treat in the middle of winter by either splurging on fresh strawberries or using frozen.
  • If the bottoms of the shortcakes stick slightly to the cookie sheet, use a metal spatula to easily lift them off.
  • Get creative with your fruit filling. Why not Raspberry Shortcakes? Or Blueberry-Peach?
  • Wash and cut fruit just before making the shortcake.
  • Mix fruit with sugar and let stand so it draws out juice and makes a fruit syrup to spoon over the shortcake.
  • Cut in butter until mixture looks like coarse crumbs, so butter will be evenly distributed, for flaky shortcake.
  • Stir just until blended so that dough isn’t overmixed, which can make shortcake tough.
  • Beat whipping cream only until soft peaks form so that it holds a loose shape when spooned onto the shortcake.
  • This recipe uses Bisquick™ for an easy, flaky shortcake shortcut that doesn’t skimp on taste. If you’re looking for an all-scratch recipe for a shortcake try our Strawberry Shortcake.
