Quick Strawberry Shortcake

I don't know if you guys know this, but I love strawberries!! I've pinned more than my fair share of strawberry recipes on Pinterest. I've recently started buying strawberries (although I'm sure they're not in season) and the thing about buying fruit is you definitely have to use them before you lose them. So I figured, why not try one of the many strawberry recipes I've pinned?!

This recipe was pinned by Pillsbury, so I knew it would be good. I deviated from the recipe a bit because although I baked the amount of "cakes" (or biscuits) suggested in the recipe, I only fully prepared two cakes. The original recipe link is below.


Now, here's how I prepared this dish. Remember: the biscuit ingredients are for 5 cakes but the strawberry ingredients are for 2 cakes.

Ingredients
  • Biscuits
    • Pillsbury Grands Buttermilk Biscuits
    • 2 tablespoons of melted butter
    • About 1/2 cup of sugar 
  • Strawberries
    • 4 to 6 strawberries, sliced
    • About 1/4 cup of sugar
  • Whipped Cream
    • I completely deviated from the recipe and used Reddi Wip since it's an already sweetened whipped cream
Steps
  1. First, I started the strawberries. All I had to do with these was rinse them off and cut them into slices. After that was done, I sprinkled sugar on them so they could make their own juice
  2. Then I opened the can of biscuits to prepare them for the oven.
  3. I took each biscuit and rolled it around in the butter so that it was covered.
  4. Then I rolled the butter covered dough in sugar.
  5. I placed 5 of these on an ungreased cookie sheet and baked for about 15 minutes.
  6. I then took them out to cool for about 5 minutes.
  7. Next, I cut each biscuit in half...
  8. And layered the strawberry/sugar mix and Reddi Wip as you see in the picture. Finito!!
This was very good and quick dessert. I was so excited about finding out that I wouldn't have to go to work the next day that I made these treats.

I think making this can be kind of a waste if you're not going to use the whole can of biscuits because you can't store opened biscuits without destroying the quality of the dough. What I would suggest is to bake all the biscuits in the can so you can store the cooked biscuits. It would be much easier to reheat the cooked biscuits then to try and store dough! Either way, I plan on using this recipe again. It was a hit!

Try it and let me know what you think!
