"This looked really good and there wasn't anything wrong with it but it just wasn't what I was looking for.Unlike some other reviewers I don't care for the biscuit type shortcake and that is what this tastes like to me.Ine review thought it too sweet but I didn't think it was sweet enough.Will keep searching for a shortcake recipe"

"I used butter instead of shortening and it was perfect. Delicious, not too sweet for the strawberries. A much better option than a flaky biscuit! This will be my new go to all summer. Kids and grandparents loved it!"

"This was good but more like cake. I missed the taste and texture of the old fashioned biscuit shortcake. It was very good, though."

"I am not a big strawberry shortcake lover but i made this today for my husband for Father's Day since it is one of his favorite desserts! I made this exactly as recipe states and the cake is delicious. You do not get soggy cake by using shortening(as someone stated) and it isn't too sweet with 2/3 cup sugar. I don't understand why everyone messes with good recipes! Make it as is and make your own whipped cream(no can!!) and use fresh strawberries!"

"I didn't actually get to eat this, as I made it for my daughter to serve to her boyfriend's family. She reports that they all loved it and she brought home an empty pan. I substituted softened butter for the shortening."
