We couldn't wait for June and my Mom's strawberry shortcakes with these biscuits hot from the oven, slathered with butter, and topped with freh strawberries and whipped cream.
Sadly and oddly enough this was the only time my Mom ever made biscuits.
The only other time I had biscuits was in school, cafeteria biscuits, loved them so much, TRADED stuff to get MORE biscuits. Makes me sad now just to think of it :(
