These were yummy! I did tweak it a bit to suit our tastes. I cut the recipe in half for just my husband and I. Therefore I should have done 2 tbsp (1/8C) of sugar for the strawberries, but I instead started with 1 tbsp, and didn't even put the entire tbsp on. Our strawberries were pretty ripe and didn't need a lot of sugar. I'm glad I didn't put all of it on. I used a combination of dark chocolate and milk chocolate chips. Next time I'm going to increase the chocolate chips just a bit, it seemed like it could use just a tad more. I loved the dark chocolate in it, next time I might do all dark chocolate. After brushing the shortcakes with butter, I didn't put the entire amount of sugar on top of them either. It should have been 1/2 tbsp, but I think I did only a little over a half of that. Again, I'm glad I didn't. I had the shortcakes in my oven for about 18 minutes, but it probably could have used maybe 1 more minute, as the inside was just barely "done". Like others said, it was like a light crumbly shortbread cookie. I'm definitely going to make this recipe again.

I make this often when company comes over. They look at it, and are so impressed-it looks like I slaved away in the kitchen. (Not about to tell them how easy it was...) Taste is awesome.

We thought this was really good and very rich, but I used coconut cream instead of the heavy whipping cream as I am lactose intolerant. I also didn't see the need to brush the tops with the Tablespoon of butter as they were very greasy without it and the sugar stuck just fine.

this recipe only made six for me (using their 1/3 cup measurement for each biscuit) but that was plenty. packed lots of flavor!
