Southern Style Strawberry Shortcake

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.

Slice strawberries.

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.
