These vanilla biscuits are best fresh from the oven, so if you can, bake them about an hour before you plan to serve the shortcakes. The whipped cream in the biscuit dough is a bit unusual, and the results are out of this world.

My rating and review is for the Vanilla Shortcakes which are amazingly delicious and easy to make! No cutting in butter - just whip and stir. I dumped the whole dough onto a silpat and divided into 6 pieces and patted into rounds. Mine cooked in 12 minutes. They are tender without crumbling. Reminded me of a scone. I almost made a big round and cut into wedges - next time.
These biscuits are so amazing. I made these for a dinner party and they were a big hit. I made the roasted berries and while they were good- I think I prefer fresh berries on a shortcake. Also, the mixture of sour cream and whipping cream is heavenly.
