It’s officially summer and that means strawberries are in season. With fresh strawberries come numerous ideas for delicious desserts. One classic dessert recipe with fresh strawberries is strawberry shortcakes. Normally when I make these I just buy angel food cake but this time I decided to try making my own. I actually got this recipe off of the back of a bisquick box. With that said, it’s no surprise this recipe calls for original bisquick mix. If you want to make your own strawberry shortcakes give this a try. Enjoy.

4 cup fresh strawberries (sliced)
