$20 or less: Strawberry short-cake

I stumbled across this and thought I'd share the recipe here:

1 can of buttermilk biscuits or Hostess brand sponge cake shells- APX 1.60 = 1.60
2 lbs of fresh strawberry's - APX$4.99/lb = 9.98
juice of 1/2 lemon or lime - APX .59c each = 0.59
1/4-1/2 cup sugar - APX $2.00    = 2.00
1 can whipped cream - APX $3.50 = 3.50

Slice strawberry's and combine in airtight bowl with sugar (to taste) & lemon juice.
Place in the fridge for 1HR - overnight 
Bake biscuits as directed 
Place 1/2 biscuit on plate
Place strawberry mixture over biscuit just prior to serving.
Add whipped cream as desired.

***Juice is not absolutely necessary to enjoy this.  Of course you can always make your own biscuits from scratch.***
