Strawberry Shortcake

Before I started dinner, i started on dessert. I had these strawberries that had to be used. I had some Light Cool Whip as well, b/c I love that stuff! I mean I buy it in hordes. It was on sale from something like 99 cents. I bought 3 of them & put them in the deep freeze about a month ago, I am down to 1/2 of a container. Back to the point, I knew I had seen an easy shortcake recipe somewhere. I just couldn't remember where. On the back of a box of something...

This was so simple. I should have made simple syrup first, let it cool & pour over the strawberries, but I didn't so they were a little liquidy. It worked in my favor though since the shortcakes sopped up the juice.
Delicious, refreshing & so easy for a week night treat.

2 1/3 cups Original Bisquick® mix
1/2 cup milk
3 tablespoons sugar
3 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
Sweetened sliced strawberries
Whipped topping or whipped cream

1. Heat oven to 425°F.
2. Stir Bisquick mix, milk, sugar and butter until soft dough forms. Drop by 6 spoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet.
3. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Split warm shortcakes; fill and top with strawberries and whipped topping. (Sweeten strawberries before making shortcakes so sugar has time to dissolve; for each quart of sliced strawberries, stir in 1/2 cup sugar.)

I can't buy Cool Whip to keep in the freezer in bulk because I pull it out and eat half a container in one sitting like ice cream.
Your strawberry shortcake looks yummy.

Jules! I make this alllll the time in the summer, I love it. So good and so simple. Actually I think it may have been one of the first things I blogged about last year.
