Biscuit Dough

  • 2 Cups Flour
  • 1/3 Cup Sugar
  • 2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/3 Cup Butter, chilled
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • 3/4 Cup Heavy Whipping Cream

Biscuit Topping

  • 1/4 Cup Heavy Whipping Cream
  • White Sugar for Sprinkling

Fruit and Whipped Cream

  • 1 lb. Fresh Strawberries
  • 2 Cups Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • 2 Tbs. Powdered Sugar


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment or spray with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. In a mixing bowl or in a food processor, whisk together the flour, sugar, and baking powder. Cut in the butter until well blended.
  3. Stir in the heavy cream, egg, and vanilla.
  4. Once the dough comes together dump it out on a lightly floured surface and pat it to a little more than 1/2 inch thick. This dough may be a little sticky. Lightly flouring your fingers may help. Cut out the biscuits with a 2 1/2 inch biscuit cutter and place them on the prepared baking sheet.
  5. Brush the tops of the biscuits with the 1/4 cup of heavy cream and generously sprinkle the top of the cream with the sugar.
  6. Bake at 400 degrees for 18-20 minutes. The bottom edges should be golden brown.  Cool on a wire rack until almost completely cool.  Prepare the strawberries and whipped cream.
  7. Slice the strawberries thinly.  Set aside.
  8. Beat the 2 cups of heavy cream, vanilla, and powdered sugar until stiff peaks form.
  9. Carefully slice the cooled biscuits in half.  Top the bottom half with sliced strawberries followed by a dollop of whipped cream.  Top with the top of the biscuit.  Top with additional strawberries and whipped cream.
  10. Serve and enjoy!


This recipe calls for a total of 3 cups Heavy Whipping Cream.  I have divided it up throughout the recipe according to the amounts you use as you go.
