Back when store-bought shortcake was an unheard-of thing, my grandmother passed this recipe down to my mother. Mother later shared it with me, and I've since given it to my daughter. —Althea Heers, Jewell, Iowa
IT SEEMS Mom was always making biscuits. She served them plain for breakfast and dinner, especially when we had stew or baked beans.
My favorite was when she served them like thistopped with fresh strawberries and whipped cream! Elaine Gagnon

I RECEIVED this recipe from my mother. It's one of the first desserts I make in the spring when our rhubarb comes in.
I discovered rhubarb and peaches go well together, and the biscuits make it a hearty dessert.

I use purchased pound or sponge cake instead of from-scratch biscuits. By varying the fruits, it's a treat for any season. Kids enjoy adding their choice of sandae toppings.Christi Gillentine, Tulsa, Oklahoma
Succulent strawberries star in this festive finale even Cupid would crave. The juicy berries mingle with a creamy yogurt sauce that's sandwiched between heart-shaped shortcake halves. It's sweet to eat and loaded with love...not calories!
This classic dessert gets an update when fresh berries meet the convenience of prepared whipped topping, individual sponge cakes and other packaged items. It's fast and delicious when time is short. Sometimes I use scones instead of shortcakes.Ron Gardner, Grand Haven, Michigan
There is nothing as wonderful as this dessert in the summer time. The shortcake is fluffy and delicious. The strawberries are very sweet and will tastes wonderful.Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Greendale, Wisconsin
