The Homemade-ish Shortcake
If you're going to make strawberry shortcake at the height of berry season, get the most bang for your buck by spending your time on the strawberry part, and taking a shortcut with the biscuits. That's the thinking behind this treat, which is beautiful enough for a party but easy enough for anyone to make. Its base is made from refrigerated buttermilk-biscuit dough, and the filling consists of a homemade, five-ingredient strawberry frosting.
