These were good. I forgot to sprinkle the tops with turbinado sugar and I omitted the sugar from the whipped cream but no one seemed to miss it because the berries were sweet. I didn't detect the lemon juice in the berry mixture. I liked the idea of adding the poppy seeds to the shortcakes; I may try that with another shortcake recipe that I have that I like a little better (the results were a little more tender).

My family loved this! I omitted the poppy seeds and cut the dough into 8 squares instead of 6, but will go back to 6 next time. It was so fast, easy and yummy that I will be making it many times this summer during strawberry season. It's best eaten the same day if possible.

These strawberry shortcakes were fabulous! The poopy seeds gave the shortcakes such a unique touch! My family and guests loved them! I might add some blackberries next time, too. This is a keeper!
