A Real Southern Treat!!

Lord Honey, don't be fooled by the word cake--this recipe for my "Southern Strawberry Shortcake" starts with my "Southern Skillet Biscuit" recipe--that's right--the best shortcakes are really biscuits. Y'all will be believers in the power of the biscuit when you wrap your tastebuds around this sweet & savory Southern favorite.
