Strawberry Shortcake makes a classic dessert. Made of tender biscuits, topped with sweetened strawberries, and whipped cream, this simple strawberry shortcake is a favorite!
Strawberry shortcake is by far one of my husband’s favorite desserts. I can’t even begin to tell you how many I’ve made in all of our years of marriage, but I can tell you that as soon as strawberry season peaks, so does his appetite for strawberry shortcake.
It’s not hard to see why. When strawberries are fresh, perfectly sweetened, and just bursting with flavor, they just are perfect paired with a lightly sweetened biscuit and fresh whipped cream. Thankfully, they couldn’t be much simpler to make either!

How to Make Strawberry Shortcake Recipe
One of the things I love most about this recipe is how quick and easy it is to make!
I start with my Two Ingredient Cream Biscuits that couldn’t be simpler to make! They are perfectly tender and delicious and work perfectly in the shortcake without even adding sugar to them!
You’ll want to slice your strawberries and add about a tablespoon or so of granulated sugar, honey, or maple syrup to them. This brings out so much flavor of the strawberry, along with tons of juice, and eliminates any tartness you might get in your strawberries.
When you are ready to serve your shortcake, you’ll split the biscuit in half horizontally, pile it high with strawberries (and their juice to soak into the biscuit!), put the top of the biscuit back on top of the strawberries, and then a huge dollop of whipped cream on top.
Here’s my favorite recipe for Strawberry Shortcake. I think you’ll love it!
Strawberry Shortcake Recipe
- Place strawberries into a large bowl. Toss with sugar, honey or maple syrup. Allow to sit lightly covered with plastic wrap to macerate.
- Prepare biscuits according to directions. Allow biscuits to cool.
- To serve, split each biscuit in half horizontally. Top the bottom half of each biscuit with strawberries, along with a bit of the juices. Place the top half of the biscuit on top of the strawberries and serve with a dollop of whipped cream on top.
