Classic Strawberry Shortcake
Growing up, our Strawberry Shortcake was usually served on a sponge cake bowl bought from the grocery store. Remember these?
I did NOT like these.
They were dry and tasteless.
Then one day I had a strawberry shortcake dessert where the sponge cake was replaced with a light, fluffy homemade buttermilk biscuit.
It's amazing the difference that biscuit made.
Now, in a perfect world I would make my own biscuits from scratch, use fresh strawberries and homemade whipped cream.
But this is not a perfect world. This is a world where I have to work 8 hours a day, go pick up my daughter from daycare, and slide by to get my hideous eyebrows waxed before i go home and cook supper.
So I used Pillsbury Grands Buttermilk biscuits, frozen strawberries in syrup ( I bought the store brand), and RediWhip (because I just love that stuff).
And they were AWESOME!
