This recipe is sure to satisfy your craving for real strawberry shortcake, not the spongy kind you buy at the store, but the southern home-style kind. Of course, good luck finding gluten-free strawberry shortcakes this good anywhere else. This recipe is gluten-free, nut-free and egg-free.

Strawberry Shortcakes (Gluten-Free)
 Serving size: Makes 9 shortcakes

Strawberry Topping Ingredients:

  • 3 baskets organic strawberries
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar- to taste
To make strawberry topping:
  1. Remove the stems from the strawberries. Slice into thin (¼ " to ⅛") slices. Put into a large bowl.
  2. Add sugar and mix into the strawberries.
  3. Set aside at room temperature.
  4. After the strawberries have been sitting for about 30 minutes, take a fork and mash them a little- just enough to get more juice out of them.
Homemade whipped cream Ingredients:
  • Small box whipping cream
  • 2 drops gluten-free pure vanilla extract
  • 1-2 teaspoons sugar
To make whip-cream:
  1. Whip the cream thoroughly.
  2. Add  two drops of vanilla and 2 teaspoons of sugar, or to taste.
  3. Cover and store in the refrigerator until you are ready to use.
Gluten-Free Biscuit Ingredients:
  • 3 cups  gluten-free all purpose flour
  • 1 ⅓ Tablespoons gluten-free baking powder
  • ⅔ teaspoon salt
  • 3 Tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 ⅓ teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 12 Tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1 ⅓ cups heavy cream
To Make Biscuits:
  1. Sift the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt into a large bowl.
  2. Mix with a fork to blend.
  3. Cut the butter into the flour mixture with a pastry cutter or a fork until the largest pieces of butter are the size of peas.
  4. Combine the cream and vanilla in a separate bowl. Pour the cream mixture into the flour mixture and mix with a fork until the dough is evenly moistened and just combined. It will be dry and choppy. Gently knead by hand to create a loose ball.
  5. Turn the dough out onto a lightly gluten-free floured cutting board and pat it into an 8-inch square, ¾ to 1 inch thick.
  6. Transfer the dough to a baking sheet lined with parchment, cover with plastic and chill for 20 minutes in the refrigerator.
  7. Heat the oven to 425ºF.
  8. Remove the dough from refrigerator. Cut the dough into 9 even squares and spread them about 2 inches apart from each other on the baking sheet.
  9. Bake until the biscuits are medium golden brown, approximately 20 minutes
Serving suggestion: To serve strawberry shortcakes, split a biscuit in half. Ladle strawberries over the biscuit. Add  whipped cream and dig in!

Last December, I was horribly sick. Suddenly, questioning gluten; I didn't eat any. The change was beyond enormous, and I could not ever bring myself to voluntarily eat it, again. It was as if I was finally, not being electrocuted! A nasty, blistering rash went away, at the same time. Now, I am ...

Same here. Our doctor told us that my daughter does not have celiac right after the endoscopy. We were overjoyed. 2 weeks later, they called and gave us the test results, and that she does have celiac. I would wait at least until the actual results before worry about next steps.

Peanut butter is always my breakfast when I want to stay full for a while. When I am in a rush, I just eat a spoon of peanut butter and a glass of milk with some fruit. When I have a bit more time, I make toast with peanut butter. Cereal doesn't keep me full in general. I know you said you ...

My GI said the same thing, but he warned me that we would have to wait for the pathologist's report. Guess what? The report showed moderate to severe patches of intestinal damage. So, hang in there and just wait for those results.

What sort of side effects did you have? I feel like I still have acid every morning, upset stomach, bloating, burping, and poor tolerance to most food.
