    My mom has always made her strawberry shortcake with what she call her 'sweet biscuits'. And we're not even from the South! Basically, they are her regular baking powder biscuits with more sugar in them. I like strawberry shortcake like this (hers and your recipe) much better than those weird little dry sponge cakes from the store! The one difference I see from hers and your recipe is that she doesn't butter her biscuits before topping with the strawberries; weird, because my mom is a butter-holic. I can't believe she never thought of that! Thanks for sharing! - Nat
