Strawberry Shortcake

What do you do when you are told the strawberries you bought are almost too ripe, you want to bake something for your baking blog AND you spy a box of Dream Whip in your pantry?

Why not do what I did, and make a strawberry shortcake recipe?
I used the biscuit-type shortcake recipe from the 12th edition of Better Homes and Gardens Cook Book. Page 246. I chose to make the individual shortcakes, since they are less messy to make up. I made the dough into 6 rounds, not 8, since there are 6 of us.

This recipe was like a biscuit recipe - maybe with a bit more sugar and butter.

And Voila! Here it is. To assemble, I cut the biscuit in half, spread with a spoonful of berries, a spoonful of Dream Whip and the top of the biscuit. Then another small scoop of berries and whip and finally, a big, beautiful berry on top!

Times three! Then I made 3 more for the rest of the family. What a nice way to enjoy those strawberries. They were perfect!
