I agree with Andrea and wimermaid.. IO have made shortcake from "scratch" in the same time I have made it from Bisquick.. even the Heart friendly Bisquick.. Most store bought taste like cardboard and are full of preservatives, etc.
How can this nutritional information be trusted if it's unclear the biscuits are "store bought or made from a mix"?? I appreciate your simple recipes, but you dodged out on this one. Suggestion: The shortcake recipe on "Bisquick" is simple enough to qualify and much more delicious than anything store bought.
Duh - Come on Real Simple - how tough is it to make a short cake. This is so Sandra Lee.
Recipe is luscious. As a diabetic, type II, I would love to see grams of sugar among nutritional data for recipes. Sugar content can often be reduced by half without hurting recipes like this one and will actually enhance the true flavors of the already naturally sweet fruit. And a tiny bit of vanilla added to heavy cream will easily replace sugar since cream already has sugar in it naturally. Yum, Pam Sloane
