Instructions

To make the shortcake:

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with non-stick spray.
  2. Add all of the ingredients to a mixing bowl and stir well to combine.
  3. Use a large cookie scoop to scoop out 8 biscuits.
  4. Lightly flatten the biscuits with your fingers.
  5. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.
  6. Cool biscuits before assembling.

To prepare the strawberries:

  1. Rinse and dry the strawberries.
  2. Slice the strawberries and add to a mixing bowl with the sweetener. You may want more or less sweetener, depending on how sweet the berries are. Taste and adjust as needed. Stir berries to coat them in the sweetener.
  3. Let sit while the biscuits are baking to release some of their juices.

To make the whipped cream:

  1. Add the cold whipping cream to a medium mixing bowl and beat with an electric mixer until soft peaks form.
  2. Add the sweetener and vanilla to the cream and beat well until soft and billowy. Do not overmix.

To assemble:

  1. Carefully split each biscuit in half. The biscuits can be delicate; if the top half of the biscuits crumble, just sprinkle them over the shortcakes.
  2. Evenly divide the strawberries and whipped cream among the biscuits, layering them with a biscuit half on bottom, then whipped cream and strawberries. Repeat layers once per shortcake.

Notes

The shortcakes themselves aren't very sweet. Most of the sweetness will come from the berries. For a sweeter shortcake, you can try adding additional sweetener, but we would not add more than 1/4 cup.

You may need more or less sweetener on the berries, depending on how sweet they are. In-season berries tend to be sweetest and will need less of the sweetener.

We prefer Lakanto Monkfruit Sweetener. It bakes and tastes like real sugar with zero impact on blood glucose. Use code THATLOWCARLIFE for 20% off your order at Lakanto.com. Other sweeteners that swap 1:1 for sugar may be used, but we have not tested them.
