Homemade Strawberry Shortcake

Classic, easy Strawberry Shortcake Recipe! The homemade shortcake biscuits are impressively soft and layered with juicy strawberries and whipped cream.

When it comes to strawberry shortcake, some people favor a cake-like base and others prefer a biscuit base. I am firmly in the latter camp. You just can’t beat a warm, crumbly buttermilk biscuit filled with juicy strawberries and whipped cream.

For those intimidated by making homemade biscuits, rest assured: these are easy to prepare. I mix the dough by hand the old-fashioned way. And, instead of rolling the dough out and cutting it with biscuit cutter, I shape it into free-form balls. Not only is this method easier, but it also gives the biscuits a craggy texture with lots of nooks and crannies, perfect for soaking up all the strawberry juices without getting soggy.

There’s absolutely nothing tricky about making strawberry shortcake; the key is to make it during peak strawberry season using the juiciest, sweetest strawberries you can find.
