Don't you just love berry season? It seems like it came early this year here in our little corner of Arkansas. Every year around this time I have to make all the things with delicious fresh-picked strawberries, including strawberry cream pie, strawberry freezer jam, and strawberry shortcake. Because who doesn't love a good old-fashioned strawberry shortcake, especially when it involves Grandma's biscuits?

And of course, the star of the show… Red, juicy strawberries.

Speaking of Grandma's Biscuits…

For as long as I can remember, Grandma kept a slip of paper taped to the inside of her cabinet door. That slip of paper held her favorite biscuit recipe, handwritten in her own handwriting. My mom now has that same slip of paper taped to the inside of her cabinet door. And I'm considering writing out the recipe and taping it to the inside of our cabinet.

We love making these biscuits. They can be rolled out or dropped. For this particular recipe, I actually grabbed spoonfuls and shaped them by hand, so they were more like drop biscuits. I also added in a teaspoon of sugar just to add a li'l sweetness to the recipe since I planned to use them for strawberry shortcake.

Before I actually created this recipe, I had this idea to add cream cheese to the homemade whipped cream I planned to make. Dan wasn't sure it would work; frankly, I wasn't either. But like I've said before, cream cheese is one of my favorite ingredients. Ever.

Well, it worked. The whipped cream is so creamy and flavorful. It definitely adds a special touch to the shortcake.

  8. Once the biscuits have cooled, slice a biscuit in half.
  9. Place bottom half of biscuit on plate. Add a layer of sliced strawberries, followed by a generous layer of whipped cream, then another layer of sliced strawberries. Top with the top half of the biscuit.
  10. Add a small dollop of whipped cream to the top, followed by a whole strawberry.
  11. Serve and enjoy!
