Your golden biscuits look delicious! And you’re right – I haven’t had strawberry shortcake since my diagnosis. Mom was in the biscuit pool, and I have fond memories of learning to make this dessert beside her. Mom also made homemade jam from strawberries and boysenberries. Strawberry picking was fun, but boysenberry picking was a bit more prickly ( thorns). Thanks for the recipe and bringing back some great memories.

Thanks, Wild Child, I’m glad that I’m able to bring back a recipe with nostalgia attached to it. I’ve never gone boysenberry picking, and I’m not even sure I’ve tried boysenberries. Did your Mom make a jam that combined the two fruits? Sounds intriguing.

My kids went picking today and bought home over 10 pounds of strawberries, so I will definitely try this recipe soon.

Mmm… you’re lucky to have that many fresh berries! The berries in the stores just aren’t as good as fresh picked. Enjoy!

Wow…. that brings back memories! I too remember endless hours of strawberry picking (or was that eating?). Sadly we don’t seem to have pick your own as much now in the UK. The shortcakes look yum though, so will have to give them a try.

Glad to hear I wasn’t the only one, Kate. 🙂 That’s sad that there aren’t many pick your own places there, is that due to space, or just lack of interest? Definitely give the shortcakes a try, even if the picking only requires going to the market. 🙂

Not sure why they gave up on them. They always seemed really busy so maybe it was lack of space! I will definitely try the shortcakes soon though.

Well, I hope you’re able to at least buy some fresh berries. 🙂 I think blackberries and raspberries (or a combination) would be great too.

We picked up some local spray free berries at the market over the weekend and I wanted to do something special with them. When I came across this recipe I knew this was it! They turned out beautifully and the recipe was easy to follow and not overly difficult to make. I will definitely be trying more of your recipes in the near future 🙂

That’s awesome, Amanda! So glad that they were a hit! 🙂

I just made these. I adjusted the recipe slightly (took away 2T of rice flour and added 2T of tapioca flour, I also added some lemon and orange zest to the dry ingredients and the strawberry mixture). I also used a food processor. They turned out great! I’ve tried a couple different gf shortcake recipes on the web and I like yours the best! Thanks for sharing!

Thanks very much, Heidi! Glad to hear that the substitutions worked as well. 🙂

I made the strawberry shortcake for the Fourth of July. Fantastic recipe. Really like the frozen butter grating technique. Thank you!
Thanks, Teri! That technique works well, doesn’t it? No fancy equipment needed, and it gives it a great texture.

did you mean to put 1 tablespoon of baking powder? that seems like too much?
May 20, 2014 at 6:30 pm
Yes – 1 tablespoon, 3 teaspoons. You’re welcome to try with less if you’d like, but it works great as written.
