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!

Ingredients

STRAWBERRY MIXTURE

1 qt
strawberries (4 cups) hulled and cut into quarters
1/4 c
sugar
dash of cinnamon

BISUITS

2 1/3 c
your favorite biscuit mix
1/2 c
milk
3 Tbsp
sugar
3 Tbsp
butter, melted

Step-By-Step

1Wash and hull strawberries, then slice into quarters or slices (your preference). Add sugar and cinnamon; stir and cover. Let stand while you make the biscuits. (Add more or less sugar to your taste.)
2Preheat oven to 425'F.
3In medium bowl, stir Bisquick mix, milk, 3 tablespoons sugar and the melted butter until soft dough forms. On ungreased cookie sheet, drop dough by 6 spoonfuls. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown.
4Split warm shortcakes; spread a little butter on the bottom half; drop a spoonful of your favorite whipped cream over the butter, then a scoop of strawberries. Add the top half of the biscuit, and top with strawberries and more whipped cream.
