Strawberry Shortcake....

Had the first of the season tonight, Here's the question....do you make your own shortcakes or do you prefer those nasty little "dessert cups"? Angel Food cake? Pound cake? We always make ours from scratch using Bisquick....hot out of the oven. When I was a kid, a few times a year this was supper...

    Much more flavor than the little cups.................. and I pour a little milk on it too.

    Pound cake ... then strawberries ... then whipped cream and repeat cake - berries - cream for a second layer.

    My thoughts are generally clear. My typing, not so much.

    Give me the strawberry and whip cream. You can keep the cake.

    Blue Bell vanilla ice cream is much more betterer

    My wife makes biscuits from scratch and sprinkles sugar on them before she bakes them.

    So... bisquick makes, biscuit like things.
    I can't imagine that being good with strawberries and whip cream.
    I don't like the little desert cups, aka sponges. I do like angel food though.

    Add 3 tablespoons of sugar to the dough and it's shortcake, not biscuits,,,,

    You guys suck! I got 5 pounds of blackberries in the freezer and a can of whipped cream in the fridge. Now I got to run to the store for a pound cake and vanilla ice cream.

    I need to check out the farmers market over in St Andrew's. See when the local berries are ready down here. Not the big imported styrofoam ones. Usually the first week of June for strawberries back in Ohio.
