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.
