As a mom of four, I appreciate shortcut recipes. This one uses refrigerated biscuits, giving me time for special touches, like adding homemade whipped cream and hot fudge. —Melissa Haines, Valparaiso, Indiana
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
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 this—topped with fresh strawberries and whipped cream! —Elaine Gagnon
