Meal Planner Monday: Strawberry Shortcake

Look at these yummy berries Mom brought me last week... ...of course I made "Strawberry Shortcake" !
This is the classic biscuit recipe that I make:
6 Tbsp. margarine
2 cups flour
1 Tbsp sugar
3 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
3/4 cup milk
Cut shortening into flour, sugar, baking powder and salt using a pastry blender or fork until mixture looks like fine crumbs. Stir in milk (dough will be soft and sticky). Place and pat down in 9 x 9 ungreased pan. Bake 15-20 minutes at 350 degrees.
Serve with sliced berries and sweetened whipped cream (or milk or vanilla ice cream).
Sweetened Whipped Cream
Beat 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream and 1 Tbsp granulated or powdered sugar in a chilled bowl with an electric mixer on high speed until stiff.
I'd also like to try this recipe sometime for Whole Wheat Strawberry Shortcake ...
And, for old times sake...Harpst clan you have to see this video! Good times!!

nice photo of the berries :)
I like the biscuit version too but this year we had more of a pound cake with ours... you're funny about the video. It makes you wonder how they can still be doing the EXACT same script though. :)

Glad you liked them.
They didn't seem to last too long but were good while they lasted!

I had forgotten about the hoop de doo song! :)
