"I just whipped this up after dinner.... I was short on milk so I added a little hazelnut creamer. Tastes great! My 3 boys and hubby approved!"

"I made this exactly as written. You will think it is not enough butter, but it will be just right after you add the milk. They are barely sweet and light, while still being a shortcake consistency. A keeper."

"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."

I put some turbino sugar on top of the biscuits before baking."

"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."
