Classic Strawberry Shortcakes

Rich, buttery biscuits make these shortcakes extra special! You can make the shortcakes ahead of time and even freeze them.



  1. Heat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).
  2. In a medium-size bowl, combine flour, the 1/4 cup sugar, baking powder and salt.
  3. Using a pastry blender or 2 knives, cut in butter until it is in pea-size pieces.
  4. With a fork, toss mixture as you add enough milk to make a moist dough.
  5. On a lightly floured board, turn out dough. Pat or roll out to 3/4 inch thick. Cut into 6 (3-inch) rounds.
  6. Place on ungreased baking sheets.
  7. Sprinkle with additional sugar.
  8. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden.
  9. In a medium-size bowl, combine berries and 1/4 to 1/2 cup sugar.
