Classic Strawberry Shortcake

Whenever I think of Strawberry Shortcake, I think of the biscuit or scone type, not the sponge cake little cups that you can get at the grocery store. I tend to use the Bisquick recipe for the biscuits, it's quick, easy, and the family all love them. But, if you'd rather bake your own from scratch...go for it!
