Strawberry and Cream Biscuits

Makes 12-15 biscuits

2 1/4 cups all purpose flour

1 tablespoon baking powder

1/4 cup cane sugar                                                                                             

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

6 tablespoons unsalted butter, chilled (We love Happy Cow Creamery’s butter!)

1 cup fresh local strawberries, quartered

1 cup heavy cream, chilled (We love AtlantaFresh‘s heavy cream – made in Atlanta from 100% grass-fed cows!)

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Line a baking sheet with a silpat liner or parchment paper.
  2. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sugar in a large bowl. 
  3. Cut in butter using a pastry cutter or two knives until the butter is about the size of a pea. 
  4. Gently stir in the strawberries until they’re coated with flour.
  5. Add the heavy cream into the flour mixture a splash at a time and stir until just combined into a shaggy dough.  You may not use all the cream.
  6. Place dough onto a floured surface.  Using floured hands, divide, stack, and press the dough 5-8 times.
  7. Roll out dough on a floured surface to about 3/4- inch thickness.  Cut out rounds of desired size.  Place biscuits on the lined baking sheet very close together and to the sides of pan. 
  8. Bake until golden brown, about 12-15 minutes.

Light, flaky and delicious, these are a serious crowd pleaser. Whip up a batch for breakfast or dessert and then sit back and enjoy the praise that’s sure to follow your incredible biscuit making skills. Just don’t forget to stop by the grocery and buy the best possible ingredients!
