To make the Biscuits:
2 1/4 cups (12 1/2 ounces) all purpose flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon of vanilla
8 tablespoons (1 stick) cold unsalted butter, diced
3/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon (6 1/2 ounces) buttermilk
To make whipped cream:
2 cups (16 ounces) heavy cream
4 tablespoons confectioners sugar
3 cups sliced strawberries (about 1/4 cup per shortcake)
2 bags of frozen strawberries (1/4 cups per shortcake with juice)
To make biscuits:
Preheat oven to 400°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In the bowl of a food processor, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, and salt. Pulse five times to combine. Add cold butter and pulse until it is the size of peas, about another five pulses. Add buttermilk and pulse until dough just pulls together into a ball.
On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough to 1/2-inch thickness. Use a 2-inch biscuit cutter to cut out biscuits, then transfer to prepared baking sheet. Bake until puffed up and golden, about 12 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack and cool.
To make whipped cream: In a large bowl, beat together cream and confectioners sugar until soft peaks form.
Slice each biscuit in half and top with sliced strawberries. Finish with a big glob of whipped cream. Serve immediately.
If you short on time – don’t worry I have a shortcut:
You can make the short cake with Bisquick and you their directions to make biscuits. Add ½ teaspoon of vanilla for taste.
