Let's start by cleaning the strawberries to remove any grime.
Fill a large bowl with four parts water to one part white vinegar (example: 4 cups water to 1 cup white vinegar). Place the berries in the bowl so that they are completely submerged in the vinegar/water mixture and soak for 20 minutes.
Use a colander to rinse the strawberries thoroughly under cool water and allow to drain.
How to Make a Simple Strawberry Syrup
Remove the berry stems and slice the berries into even pieces.
Place berries in a bowl and top with ¼ cup of sugar using more or less to taste. Toss gently to evenly coat.
Place the berries in the refrigerator and allow to chill while making the "shortcakes".
How to Make Canned Refrigerator Biscuits in the Air Fryer
Spray the air fryer basket with oil so that the biscuits won't stick.
Lay the biscuits in a single layer on the air fryer basket. Leave room between biscuits.
Air fry at 330° degrees for 6 minutes.
Gently loosen biscuits and flip if desired.
Continue to air fry another 2 to 3 minutes until the biscuits are evenly browned and cooked through.
If baking smaller biscuits cook for 5 minutes and then another 2 minutes.
Assemble the Shortcakes
Gently pull each biscuit apart in twos (a top and a bottom) and place the bottom of biscuit on a plate.
Top with cool whip or homemade whipped cream and strawberries.
Top with the other biscuit half and more whipped cream and strawberries.
