Easy Peasy Summer Strawberry Shortcake

Berries are in season and they make a quick and tasty addition to any dessert.

This is possibly the simplest dessert you’ll ever make. It’s like a strawberry shortcake, minus the shortcake. I use Pillsbury Flaky Grands Biscuits instead.

Slice 2 cups of strawberries. Add 1 cup of blueberries and stir in  1/4 cup of sugar.

Place the biscuits on a cookie sheet that has been sprayed with a non-stick spray. Melt 2 tablespoons of butter in a microwave. Brush the tops of the biscuits with the butter and sprinkle granulated sugar on top of each biscuit. Bake at 350 degrees until golden.

Cut each cooled biscuit in half. Place a dollop of *heavy whipping cream on one of the halves and spoon a generous helping of strawberries and blueberries on top. Place the other biscuit half on top or to the side.

*Note:  I use the type of whipping cream that comes in a can to make this recipe even easier. (And then the family proceeds to spray a large helping directly into their mouths. Okay, sometimes I do too.)
