Strawberry Shortcake on Chocolate Chip Biscuits

mmmmm, fresh strawberries!
Once upon a time, I was a weird kid who didn't really like strawberries.  They have grown on me over the years, and this year, I can't seem to get enough!

I thought I would make the kids and I a special treat -
Strawberries, Sugar Free Cool Whip, Chocolate Chip Biscuits, topped with a little sugar free chocolate syrup.  Chocolate. Chip. Biscuits. Oh yes.

Chocolate Chip Biscuits adapted from Cooking During Stolen Moments
  • 3 c. flour (I used 1/2 all-purpose and 1/2 whole wheat)
  • 1/3 c. sugar
  • 1 1/2 T. baking powder
  • 3/4 t. salt
  • 1/2 c. butter (I used 1/4 c. Smart Balance butter and 1/4 c. unsweetened applesauce)
  • 1-2 c. chocolate chips (I used a combo of dark and semi sweet - 1 cup)
  • 1/2-1 c. milk (I only needed about a 1/2 cup, skim milk)
1. In a large bowl, mix together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut butter and applesauce into the flour mixture until crumbly. Stir in chocolate chips.
2. Add the milk, a little at a time, just until dough comes together. If you add too much milk and the dough becomes too sticky, add a little more flour.
3. Roll out dough and cut, or just drop 1/4 c. portions onto a baking sheet. Bake at 425 degrees for 10-15 minutes, until fully cooked and lightly browned on top. I made these a little larger than usual since I wanted to make big mack daddy strawberry shortcakes :)
I love this pic. Check out the top left corner....little hands that couldn't wait to get into the strawberries too.  He likes his with powdered sugar.


  1. Love this fun new twist on shortcake - yum!

  2. That looks delicious! Strawberries and watermelon are my two favorite fruits.

    OMG, that video you sent me! I ended up watching it on my smart phone - I was crying at the end!

    I'll share that over the weekend - thanks and have a good one!

  3. You have just kicked up strawberry shortcake in major way! I love that you made it with chocolate chip biscuits. That's a must try. Yum!

  4. How delicious!! I know I've been pretty absent in the blogosphere during grad school, but I wanted to share the fact that I adopted a new kitten with you. :-) I posted a pic and the story in my last blog post. I hope you're doing great!

  5. I love strawberry shortcake, but you just managed to make it even better. Because chocolate makes everything better! :)
