Add sugar (to your taste).

I added about 1/3 cup of sugar to my quart of strawberries.

Keep tasting until you get the sweetness you desire.

Mix well, refrigerate and let sit for at least 30 minutes.

Use a 3” wide glass or cookie cutter and cut circles out of the dough.

Keep reforming the unused dough into a ball and roll it to continue cutting more.

I cut a total of nine shortcakes out of mine.

Place the dough circles onto an ungreased cookie sheet.

Ingredients

Strawberry Mixture:

  • 1 quart fresh strawberries
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar (or to taste)

Shortcakes:

  • 2 & 1/3 cups Bisquick Original baking mix
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 3 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 3 Tbsp melted butter
  • Sweetened whipped cream

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Wash the strawberries and cut the tops off.
  3. Using a pastry blender, squish the strawberries so the juice starts to flow and strawberries are chopped up.
  4. Stir in the sugar a little at a time, tasting each time until you get your desired sweetness.
  5. Cover and set in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
  6. Make the shortcakes: In a bowl combine Bisquick, milk, sugar and butter.
  7. Use a fork and mix thoroughly until it turns into a dough.
  8. Lightly sprinkle Bisquick on a counter or cutting board.
  9. Place the dough on it and knead the dough about 10 times until it will form a ball.
  10. Using a rolling pin, roll the dough about 1/2” thick.
  11. Using a 3” glass or cookie cutter, cut circles out of the dough. Take the leftover dough and make another ball, roll it again and cut more 3” circles. Repeat until the dough is used up. I made 9 circles of dough.
  12. Place the dough circles onto an ungreased cookie sheet.
  13. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the bottoms are a golden brown.
  14. Serve warm or let cool with the strawberries and top with the whipped cream.

  1. No Bisquick here dear but can make my very own shortbread with home made butter and egg yolks from our hens. Mixes you have or those sold in native England do not exist here as so many things outside of Latvia.A waking up nation of million folk in wilds of forest and lakes are some 50 years or more behind of civilization in many things and far ahead in technology as kids here make computers before using them. I use a 11 year old how taught me how to down load free photo for my blog. Cleaver but I bake cakes and bread that stuns them that are merely old fashioned from grandmothers time for me.

  2. We do grwo fruit and half acre of strawberrys in rows in field gardens under wheat straw to keep the fruit from soils. just no made up mixes for fruit flan so glad I can make all with out but would it not be lovely,lovely lovely. to have it all in shops .Big stores and German supermarkets and none sell anything but base goods. Maybe the Latvians dont bake just buy made up cakes.
