Classic Strawberry Shortcake recipe is easy to make which has a luscious combination of a biscuit, fresh berries, and whipped cream. It is a perfect summer dessert idea to treat your friends and family.
Strawberry shortcakes are always my number one summer dessert. They are light, refreshing, and have a beautiful combination of fresh berries and silky whipped cream. There are many different variations on how to make Strawberry Shortcake; as a cake, using biscuits, or as mini sponge cakes. But despite all of these varieties, every single one of them is delicious.

Last year I posted my version of Strawberry Shortcake Cake which is absolutely luscious. It has three layers of sponge cakes filled with strawberry compote, whipped cream, and fresh strawberries. Similar to all other cake recipes, it can also be a bit time consuming, and usually reserved for special occasions. However, I have another easy Strawberry Shortcake recipe that can be made in the blink of an eye, especially if you make the basic shortcakes ahead of time.
For the base, I use vanilla scones. It is the same recipe as I used for my Orange Cranberry Scones but I added more vanilla extract instead of orange zest and cranberries. These scones are incredibly tasty, soft, and crumbly and take no time at all to prepare.
For the classic strawberry shortcake filling, I use fresh sliced strawberries, mixed with sugar and lime juice, and whipped cream.
