This is awesome! I just substituted the whipped cream with ice cream to suit my taste better. Otherwise followed the recipe exactly.

Strawberry shortcake is a favorite summer time dessert. I loved the idea of baking the shortcakes in a muffin pan. I added 2 more tbsp. of sugar to my shortcakes because I like them a little bit sweeter. Overall a great dessert and very easy to make.

I would add fresh blueberries or some other fruit.I like to make my muffins from a mix so would use a blueberry muffin mix then follow the instructions to the end.
