  • For the biscuits, mix together the dry ingredients, including the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar in a medium bowl.
  • Use a pastry blender to blend the dry ingredients together with cold, sliced butter. Continue until the mixture is well blended.
  • Add milk to the mixture, and mix well. You should be left with a somewhat sticky but still manageable dough.
  • Grab spoonfuls of dough and shape into biscuits about 3/4 inch thick. Place on an un-greased baking sheet.
  • Bake at 425° for about 15-20 minutes, or until the tops of the biscuits begin to turn golden.
  • Meanwhile, wash, stem, and slice the strawberries.
  • Once the biscuits have cooled, slice a biscuit in half.
  • Place the bottom half of a biscuit on a plate. Add a layer of sliced strawberries, followed by a generous layer of whipped cream, then another layer of sliced strawberries. Top with the top half of the biscuit.
  • Add a small dollop of whipped cream to the top, followed by a whole strawberry.
  • Serve and enjoy!


*You can use store bought whipped cream or homemade whipped cream; the choice is up to you.
