    This is my favorite shortcake recipe. So quick and easy to make. Know your oven well, as sometimes the directions may not be inline with your oven. I have an electric oven that runs hot faster, so I bake these at 400 degrees for 15 minutes. It's always a good idea to watch what your baking, especially if it's a first time for a recipe.

    it burnt!!!!! 25 minutes seems a tad bit too long. It didn't work for me but a lot of other recipes on this site have, so one bad is okay!

    I set a timer for 20 minutes but they were already over baked by then... 425 is way too hot and 25-30 min is way too long!

    I juice my strawberries by hulling and cutting up the berry. When all are done in the bowl, add all Splenda. I am diabetic and your results will not even be noticed as no sugar added. Same with apple pie: all Splenda. Turns out perfect. But for the berries, add the Splenda and then a good mash with your potato masher. Stir it up, let it sit for awhile, and your juice will double. No need to refrigerate right away. I never bake anything at 425. Use 375 or 350 around 30 minutes bake. Watch.

    This is the exact recipe I learned from my mother many, many years ago. It's still everyone's favorite! Quick, easy, & no fail!

    SO GOOD. the only thing is that it says to bake for 25-30mins.. i set my timer at 20mins JUST in case. the temp inside the oven was 425F and around 18mins it smelled like something was burning so i peeked in and noticed they were just a tad bit darker than golden. when they cooled the bottoms were completely burned! no biggie just cut it off but next time i would bake only for 15mins or so.

    As an amateur baker, I followed the receipe strictly. Trying it for the first time this morning, the final result was super and was very popular for breakfast... In fact it seems I will be making some more tomorrow, if not later today... I am not sure I need to replenish my stock of Bisquick baking mix..lol.
