In-season strawberries, and fresh homemade biscuits with a touch of sweetness! Does anything else say, Summer? Embrace the season of Summer with this delightful strawberry shortcake biscuit recipe. Made with in-season strawberries and fresh homemade biscuits, lightly sweetened to perfection.

Maple syrup steals the spotlight in these homemade biscuits, bringing just the right amount of sweetness. Did you know that maple syrup and honey make excellent alternatives to sugar? In this recipe, which calls for two tablespoons of sugar and two tablespoons of maple syrup, you have the flexibility to use two tablespoons of honey instead. If by chance you don't have maple syrup or honey available, you can simply use four tablespoons of sugar.

At Lia Rose Simply Home we love simple. yet incredibly tasty recipes that everyone can conquer. As a mother of four and nana to two, I understand the value of time which is why I love this strawberry shortcake biscuit recipe, especially during the busy Summer months. No need for rolling out dough or any complicated steps. Just mix the batter and effortlessly drop 3 tablespoons of it onto a parchment-lined cookie sheet to form each delightful biscuit.

Commonly asked question-

Are shortbread and shortcake biscuits the same? Shortbread and shortcake biscuits may sound similar, but they do have distinct differences. While both are delightful treats, shortbread does not contain baking powder and is renowned for its richness thanks to butter. This higher fat content contributes to a fine, crumbly texture that sets it apart. Whether enjoyed by itself, paired with fruit and cream, or topped with a delicate dusting of sugar, both shortcake and shortbread biscuits offer their own unique and delicious experiences.

Homemade biscuits bring strawberry shortcake to another level and stay fresh in a ziplock bag for 4-5 days.

Biscuit Recipe

2 cups of all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon baking powder

2 tablespoons sugar

2 tablespoons maple syrup

1 teaspoon vanilla

5 tablespoons cold butter cubed

1 cup milk


1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.

2. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper, or a lightly greased cookie sheet. Parchment paper will ensure your biscuits don't stick to the cookie sheet.

3. In a mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, sugar, vanilla, and maple syrup. Add the butter and using your hands mix it into the flour mixture until it looks like crumbs.

4. Add in the milk and stir until combined. Don't overmix the batter.

5. Drop the mixture into 8 equal amounts, about 3 heaping tablespoons full onto the parchment-lined cookie sheet. You will get 8 biscuits.

6. Bake at 425 degrees for 13 to 15 mins.

How to clean strawberries? An effective, chemical-free, and inexpensive way to clean strawberries is a vinegar bath. Soaking strawberries in a mixture of water and vinegar will remove surface bacteria and pesticide residue.

How to clean strawberries with vinegar

1. In a bowl add 3 cups of water and 1cup of vinegar.

2. Soak the strawberries for 5-10 mins.

3. Drain the strawberries and rinse well with cold water.

4. Dry the berries if you're not going to use them right away. Lay them on a tea towel, or paper towel. When you are storing strawberries it's important to keep moisture away. The moisture will cause the berries to mold faster. This brings me to my next tip.

How to keep strawberries fresh? The short answer, strawberries don't stay fresh long. A vinegar bath will help berries stay fresh a little longer. Clean and dry the berries, then place a paper towel on the bottom of the container you are storing the berries in and place them in the fridge. The paper towel will absorb any moisture and help to prevent mold.
