Strawberry Shortcake

I play this game with my husband at restaurants.  I give him the dessert menu and we try to guess what each other would pick if we were ordering dessert.  Each time Strawberry Shortcake is listed, it's a guarantee that is what I would pick.

I used to make Bisquick because it was good and, well quick.  But...then I looked at the ingredients in Bisquick.   I couldn't even pronounce all of them!  This recipe is easy, cheap and very close to the Bisquick recipes.

 Strawberry Shortcake Biscuits

From BHG cookbook, somewhat adapted...I like a quicker version.

1/2 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup sugar
 1 egg
 2/3 cup milk
2 tsp. baking powder
2 cups flour

Mix butter, sugar.  Add egg.  Add milk, baking powder and flour.  Drop by rounded teaspoons onto greased cookie sheet.  Bake at 450 for 10-12 minutes.

My little guy's first taste of strawberry shortcake was met with contagious enthusiasm and a resounding "mmm".  He finished this entire bowl and then asked for more.  In some ways, he's just like his mama.
