I made this as written. It was delicious. It was light and fluffy and not too sweet. Perfect with strawberries and whipped cream. I will definitely be making this again.

I decided to make this as a late Christmas present for my boyfriend and it looks like a biscuit and a few peoples reviews said something about it turning out as a biscuit....Is that what it's supposed to be like?

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.
