Balsamic Strawberry Shortcake is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Balsamic Strawberry Shortcake So happy to see this recipe and to have the conversion from sugar to Truvia.  I recommend Truvia to everyone.  Balsamic was a little different but nice.  Adding blueberries as shown in the picture is a positive addition. Go well together.  Do not favor the biscuit mix described as Jiffy brand has fewer unnecessary additives.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This tastes GREAT I really liked this. My whole family loves this. It was easy to make, a lot less calories than we usually consume for something like this, and they all asked for more. I will be making this a lot.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great photography - looks VERY appetizing! Wonderful recipe! For those who need to cut carbs even more, try substituting almond flour for the Bisquick.
