My Mom and I have been making these Shortcake Biscuits for years! So happy to have found the recipe on-line because the recipe is no longer on the Bisquick box. Thank you!
can you substitute the milk with buttermilk?
Hi, Carol! I don’t see why not. Your batter might be a little thicker and you might have a subtle tang from the buttermilk, but I bet it would be delicious. Let us know if you try it and how it turns out!
Can u sub coconut milk?
I’ve never tried it, but I’d give it a shot, as the recipe also accommodates unsweetened almond milk, too. Thanks for your question, Cathy! Let us know how it goes, if you do make it that way,
I too was taken aback when I could’t find the recipe on the Bisquick box. It is now written and and preserved in my old school recipe box. Thank you for posting!!!
Thank you, so much for taking the time to post this recipe. Odd that they stopped posting the recipe on the Bisquick box…. then again, they know that we can just quickly look it up online and that people like you will take the time to post it for us! Thanks, again!
Wonderful and easy
Can you make it a day ahead?
Hi, Susanne! Great question. You can certainly make the biscuits a day ahead of time, but wait to assemble it until the day you plan to serve it.
I made them yesterday for Mother’s Day and thought I was losing my mind when the recipe wasn’t there!!! My sisters didn’t remember so I really had thought I had made this up. Thank you for making me feel sane again! LOL
I got out my box of Bisquick to make some for strawberry shortcakes and was like??? Where is the butter and sugar that used to be in the printed recipe on the box? Thank goodness you can find anything online. Now I can make them the way I remember.
Can I use yogert in place of milk? If yes how much?
HI, Cindy! We didn’t test it with yogurt, but it’s worth a try. The acid in the yogurt could react with the leavening agents in the Bisquick which could impact the texture of the biscuit. The batter would also be thicker. If you try it, please let us know how it turned out!
I have used this recipe for years. I place the dough into a greased (or sprayed) round cake pan. Cut when cooled into pie shapes. I serve with Strawberries, half n half or cool whip. This is the best recipe ever!
That’s the way my mother always made it. In a round pie tin then cut into pie shapes. I’m 65 and that’s how I still make it.
Haven’t made these yet but I wanted to share my Moms secret additions to her Bisquick shortcake. She baked a lot and would store the hard clods formed in the brown sugar, in a separate jar just for shortcake season. She added them, as well as crumbled walnuts and little globs of butter as she formed the biscuits on the cookie sheet. Those biscuits had the best nooks and crannies, sweet spots and crunchy spots. Covered with fresh sweetened berries from the garden. Heaven.
To be completely honest this is an easy and awesome way to make a vegan desert thanks Bisquick!
Thank you so much for posting this. I too was surprised that the box no longer has the recipe. I knew there was sugar but forgot the rest so thanks. They are delicious! I either make it with strawberries or peaches.
So happy you saved this recipe. Nothing better than Bisquick for my strawberry shortcake biscuits.
Always make Bisquick shortcakes for strawberry shortcake. The only way to go!
I also panicked! Thanks for your help. Will let you know how it turns out. It’s always delicious so not worried!
A family staple for 50 years – I panicked when the recipe was not on the box! Thank you!
