delicious...so easy and quick, and i can't wait to make them again! we had them easter weekend at the beach. I may use this as a pseudo scone recipe and add cinnamon and blueberries in the mix, omit the strawberry sauce.

Only followed the recipe for the biscuits, and they are great! Have a great mix of sweet and salty and buttery. Wanted to cut down on the calorie count of strawberry mix, so omitted the sugar and OJ. Just used strawberries, tsp of sugar, and tsp of my grandmother's homemade strawberry jam. Delicious!

This is a very easy recipe and so good. Followed exactly but made it four servings verses six. Loved the hint of orange with the strawberries and the texture of the shortcakes was divine. Will make many times again I am sure.

Delicious. A great summer dessert! The biscuits were crunchy on the outside, soft on the inside, and the strawberry sauce was delicious with orange and vanilla. I'll be making this again for sure. For better stacking: trim off the top of the middle biscuit layer (the crown) to get a flat surface. Enjoy!

So easy to make! And super tasty! I actually let the sauce chill for a day. Really good!

This was delicious. I did the strawberry mixture, but b/c of time, I did not puree; it did not make a difference, still wonderful. The shortcakes were easy & came out perfect. This is a keeper.

This is sooo good. My boyfriend and I absolutely loved it. I can't wait to make it again. I also made extra strawberry sauce and used it on waffles the morning after. Really yummy.

I only use the shortcake portion of this recipe and it is amazing! When baked correctly this shortcake has a crisp exterior and a soft interior that absorbs the juice from the strawberries and is just so tasty. Perfect with homemade whipped cream. **Since I cook for only 2 people most of the time I half the recipe and make 2 cakes (even though half would be 3) and it turns out really well. But I only bake for about 9 minutes.

This was so delicious - perfect in every way. Easy to make also! My entire family ages 5-adult loved it. This will be my go-to shortcake recipe.

I was looking for a shortcake recipe - just the shortcake itself. I prepared this recipe as is, but I only made half (for just my husband and me) and I did more of a "drop biscuit" rather than a formed shape. This was perfect! They were fluffy inside, golden, with a really nice, tender, slightly crunchy "crust" on the outside. I appreciated that they weren't overly sweet - just perfect. This recipe is for sure, a keeper. For topping, I just used fresh strawberries sliced up with no sugar, mixed with fresh mint leaves. I placed some berries in the bottom of a bowl, cut the shortcake in half horizontally, placed the bottom of a shortcake on top of the berries, added some fresh whipped cream (with just a hint of sugar), berries on top of that, added the top of the shortcake, more berries and a tad bit more whipped cream. I topped it all with a sprig of fresh mint. They were delicious.
