  • Serrated knife

  • spatula
  • baking sheet
  • nonstick foil
  • cooling wire rack
  • electric hand mixer


For the strawberry filling:

  • 1 16 oz fresh cut strawberries tops removed and sliced
  • 1 zest of 1 lemon
  • 2 tbsp sugar

For the Bisquick Shortcakes:

  • 2 ¼ cups Bisquick

For the whipped cream:

  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract use good quality extract

Preheat the oven to 450°

  • Begin by prepping your strawberries. Slice off the green top and then make 1-centimeter slices down the length of the berry. Add to a medium bowl along with your lemon zest and sugar. Mix to combine fully and set aside. Over time, the strawberries will release juice and form a syrup.

  • When ready to serve, make your whipped cream. Add the heavy whipping cream to a large bowl and begin beating with an electric mixer. As the cream starts to thicken, add your vanilla and powdered sugar. Continue beating with increasing speed just until you reach stiff peaks.

  • To assemble: slice two shortcakes in half horizontally. These shortcakes are crumbly so you want to wait until they are cooled down before cutting with a serrated knife. Place the shortcake bottoms on a plate and top them with your strawberries and syrup. Top the berries with your whipped cream, and place the shortcake top atop the cream. Serve immediately and enjoy!
