Reviews forBiscuit Strawberry Shortcake
"Excellent biscuits for strawberry shortcake. easy to make and complement the strawberries perfectly."
"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 lightKneading 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."
"only 1/2 cup milk should be used --- this is way to wet with one cup of milk also too much salt"
"Very good, but what is the 3rd Tblsp of sugar for?I put some turbino sugar on top of the biscuits before baking."
