strawberry shortcake with cream cheese frosting


I haven’t posted a recipe in a while because I’ve been laying off the sweets a bit. However, when I saw this recipe for strawberry shortcake, I happened to have all the ingredients in my fridge, and it was really easy to whip up. They are very rich and reminded me of decadent doughnuts.

Ingredients:
1 can Pillsbury Grands biscuits (8 biscuits)
1 cup sugar
2 Tablespoons cinnamon
1 package cream cheese (8 ounces), softened
2 cups powdered sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 splash of milk
carton of strawberries, sliced

Directions:
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Mix the sugar and cinnamon together in a bowl. Roll the biscuits in the sugar mixture until they’re covered on all sides. Set them on a baking sheet.

Bake about 10 minutes, or until a golden brown.

Meanwhile, beat the cream cheese, powdered sugar, vanilla, and milk with an electric mixer until well-blended. Add little splashes of milk if it’s too thick—add powdered sugar if it’s too runny.

Gently break each biscuit in half, and top with the cream cheese mixture. Then arrange the sliced strawberries on top.

Thanks to this Mix and Match Mama recipe. She also has variations for Nutella, Coconut, and S’mores shortcakes. :)

ENJOY!
