I don't know if this qualifies for a recipe but it sure makes for a substitute Strawberry dessert if you are pressed for time or don't have ingredients on hand!
Fix strawberries just like you would for strawberry shortcake. Crush or break-up ritz crackers (this substitutes for the shortcake). Cover crackers with strawberries and add milk or cream if you wish. Believe me this almost tastes like the real thing!

I recently read a recipe for strawberry shortcake using sour cream in the cake or biscuit part. I can't seem to remember where I read it. Does any one have a recipe similar?
Jo Anne from NY
Joanne - I think the recipe you are referring was in the latest issuue of Food and Family - the free magazine that Kraftfoods, sends out. I just read it last night. The recipe is called Simply Sensational Strawberry Shortcake. If you don't have the magazine, the recipe can be found at www.kraftfoods.com. Just type in Strawberry Shortcake under "Recipe Search." Its the first listing.
I just add it to biscuit mix or a biscuit recipe instead of part of the milk. I'm always fooling with biscuit recipes and adding cream, sour cream or butter make richer biscuits. Also more fattening but nice for a dessert or special occasion.
