Celebrating National Strawberry Shortcake Day

Studio 4

AMARILLO, Texas (KAMR/KCIT) –I don’t know where the origins for this day began, but it’s a great time to celebrate.

Strawberries are in season and super cheap this time of year.

Below is the quick recipe for shortcake and how to prepare the strawberries as well.



  • 4 cups sliced strawberries
  • ½ cup sugar (adjust the amount of sugar to your taste- super sweet strawberries won’t need too much sugar.  You can also use sugar substitute.)


  • 1 ¾ cups Bisquick
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • ½ cup fat-free (skim) milk
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
  • Cool whip or other whipped cream for topping


  1. In a medium bowl, toss strawberries and 1/2 cup sugar until coated. Put in refrigerator and let stand 1 hour.
  2. Heat oven to 425°F.
  3. In a medium bowl, stir Bisquick mix, 2 tablespoons sugar, the milk and butter until soft dough forms.
  4. On ungreased cookie sheet, drop dough by 6 spoonfuls.  (The shortcake will split better if you don’t flatten out the dough.)
  5. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 15 minutes.
  6. Using a knife, split warm shortcakes. Fill and top with strawberries and whipped cream.
