Old Fashioned Biscuit Strawberry Shortcake Recipe


This is my summer go to recipe. Everyone loves short cake but biscuit style. This is a biscuit recipe made in a 9 inch cake pan instead of individual biscuits. Piled high with berries and cream! Being I work so many hours I don't have time to primp and fluff my foods and desserts, especially since it's gone faster than it takes to make. If you want to take the time to make it perfect then I commend you for your efforts! Oh and if you really want to cut time use biscuit mix , 4 cups worth of mix will make
two large ones follow the package instructions!
