Petite and delicious, you won’t be able to stop at one of these bite-sized treats!
My mom took my sister and I berry picking every summer. We always had tons of fun, got super dirty, and probably ate more than we saved.
A lot of our berries went toward jam making, but we set aside plenty to eat, too. There is nothing better than a fresh, sweet strawberry!
Now, I will eat strawberries any way you serve them to me, but Strawberry Shortcake has always been one of my favorite desserts.
It’s somehow so simple, yet so perfect, and it just screams summer.
These Mini Strawberry Shortcakes are a fun twist on my favorite summer dessert.

How to Make Mini Strawberry Shortcakes
The first step in this Mini Strawberry Shortcakes recipe is making the biscuits.
They only take a few minutes to make from ingredients you probably already have in your cupboard, and the finished biscuits are light and delicious.
To cut out these tiny biscuits, you will need a small round cookie or biscuit cutter. I have a vintage cutter from my mom’s kitchen that measures somewhere between 1 and 1 1/4-inches in diameter. If you don’t have a cutter that small, check out this round cutter set (affiliate link).
After the biscuits have cooled, you’ll top them with fresh whipped cream and sweet strawberry slices.
It’s so easy to make your own whipped cream, so don’t skip that step. And of course, you’ll need the best, freshest strawberries.
And that’s all there is to this mini strawberry shortcake recipe … I told you these cuties were easy to make!
Don’t these individual strawberry shortcakes just look so delicious? I’m telling you, they’re the perfect poppable size. Yum!
