"Biscuits are fluffy and I use the same recipe for biscuits and gravy. Just omit amount of sugar to a tbsp. Awesome!

I cut the biscuits after patting out into squares.
The ingredients are precise and after a three light
Kneading in a half cup of flour will take care of the amount of milk that I add a Cargill of white vinegar for a little sour milk."

"The 3rd tablespoon of sugar gets mixed into the strawberries with the orange juice...see step 3 in the directions. Very quick and easy to mix up. Light and fluffy. Sprinkle a little sugar over the top."

"It was the best shortcake recipe ever. I doubled it and baked in a 7x11" pan instead of the individual mounds. It required a bit longer to bake but was light and fluffy...much better than the Bisquick biscuit shortcakes. Well worth the wait and going into my favorites file."
