Springtime Strawberry Shortcake

In the spring we start to see strawberries go very cheap and that is my sign to make strawberry shortcake! I use my mother in law's recipe, which creates a perfect cake to absorb all the juices you get from the fresh strawberries.


2 c biscuit mix (I use Pioneer)
1/2 to 3/4 c sugar (I use less)
1 c milk
1 t vanilla

Preheat oven to 350. Mix batter together to get a soft sticky dough. Spray cookies sheet with Pam. Form balls of dough (very sticky) and place them on the cookie sheet. Bake about 8-9 minutes until light brown on top.


1 pt strawberries, hulled and sliced

Cut up strawberries in a bowl. Sprinkle with sugar on top. Stir the sugar around. Mash with a potato masher, breaking up the big chunks. Let sit an hour or two to get the juices running. I usually keep mine on the kitchen counter.
