Secret Recipe Club-Quick StrawberryShortcakes

This month I joined in with the Secret Recipe Club hosted by Amanda from Amanda's Cookin'. Each month you are assigned a blog, make something from the blog and post it on a certain day, like today. The secret? You don't tell until posting day.

So, who was my blogger, well that would be Wendy, from The Weekend Gourmet. One of the great things about a bloghop is that you are introduced to blogs that you may not know exists, I had no idea about Wendy and I am so glad I do now! Go check her out, she has alot of great looking stuff!

I decided to make her Shortcut Strawberry Shortcakes, and is exactly what they are. I did change a couple things, just to make it a little simpler..isn't that what "shortcut" means? To make it more simpler?

Wanna join in on the fun for next month? Just go here to sign up!

Shortcut Strawberry Shortcakes
By: Wendy, at The Weekend Gourmet

1 container of strawberries, sliced
Sugar
1 container of Grands biscuits
Cool Whip

At least one hour before serving, mix your strawberries and sugar together and put into the refrigerator. I sprinkled my strawberries with about a tablespoon of vanilla sugar.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and sprinkle the top of the biscuits with some more sugar, again I used vanilla sugar and bake the biscuits 8-10 minutes, or until done. Let cool slightly.

Split your biscuit, top with some of the strawberries and Cool Whip. There you have it! Easy Peasy!

So glad you decided to make the shortcakes...and you managed to streamline them even more than I did! They were very popular at my dinner party...I need to try my hand at making some vanilla sugar. That sounds really yummy!!

Tami said...

MMM! I love strawberry shortcake and any shortcut to make them easier works for me!

Manu said...

Simple and delicious! :D

amanda @ fake ginger said...

I always buy those little sponge cakes in the produce section when I do shortcut shortcakes but this version is even easier since you can just keep a can of biscuits in the fridge! Looks delicious!

Shelby said...

I love the Grands biscuits...and I am not too great at biscuit making, so what you made here is right up my alley! ;)

Lisa~~ said...

Never thought to use Grands, what a simple and good idea.

If you haven't already, I'd love for you to check out my SRC recipe this month: Holy Guacamole.
