Have you ever heard of eating strawberry shortcake w/ a biscuit? Well I remember the first time I heard of it, I thought it was so weird! And of course had to taste awful. It was when I worked at Steak 'n Shake and they served this as one of their desserts. I put off trying it for the longest time until one of my managers talked me into trying it. All of a sudden my world was turned upside down, what?!? How could a biscuit taste so good w/ ice cream and strawberries?! Well, whatever the answer is, just believe me, it's pretty amazing! A few years ago I decided to go ahead and come up w/ my own version of Southern Style Strawberry Shortcake, and this is what I came up w/. Go ahead and give it a try. It's a very simple, quick dessert.
Mix all strawberries w/ sugar and vanilla. The sugar pulls out the natural juices of the strawberries. Let sit in refrigerator until the juices have formed.
Top biscuits w/ a scoop of vanilla ice cream, strawberries and whipped cream. Serve right away.
