Strawberry Shortcake Appetizer
- 1 - can of Pillsbury Grands biscuits
- 1 egg white
- 1 tablespoon water
- sugar for sprinkling
- 20 large strawberries, 2 slices per strawberry (use the leftovers for a salad)
- 1 - tub cool whip, defrosted
- 20 skewers, cut to size
- 1-1/2 inch biscuit cutter
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- On a lightly floured surface, roll a biscuit into a 5-inch circle.
- Cut 7 - 1-1/2 inch circles and place on a cookie sheet sprayed with non stick cooking spray.
- Whisk together the egg white and water. Brush on each biscuit and sprinkle with sugar.
- Bake 12 to 14 minutes or until golden brown.
- While the biscuits are baking prepare the strawberries.
- Cut two 1/2 inch slices from each strawberry and use the leftovers for a salad.
- Keep the two slices stacked on themselves so you can use the same strawberry for one skewer. This way they fit together better.
- Once the biscuits are baked, transfer to a cooling rack and let them cool completely before constructing the skewers.
- Then start layering; biscuit, strawberry, cool whip, do this twice ending with a third biscuit on top.
TIP: Place the bottom biscuit round on the platter and then pierce with skewer. This will help the shortcake stand.
TIP: For an cleaner application fill a piping bag with the cool whip.
- One can of biscuits made 20 appetizers. That's WITHOUT using the scraps. If you use the scraps you'll need to adjust the ingredients for extra.
