  • 2 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 5 tsp granulated sugar (for topping)

For the Whipped Cream:

  • 1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream

Instructions

For the Biscuits:

  • In a large bowl, add the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. And whisk them together.
  • Add in the cream, and stir it all together with a rubber spatula until just combined.
  • Use a large cookie scoop, or 1/4 cup measuring cup to portion out 9 or 10 dough balls and drop them onto the prepared baking sheet.
  • Use your fingers, or the bottom of a glass cup to gently press the top of the dough down to make a rounded biscuit shape.
  • Sprinkle the top of each biscuit with 1/2 teaspoon of granulated sugar.
  • Bake the biscuits for 12 to 15 minutes, or until lightly golden.

For the Strawberries:

  • When the biscuits are done, chop the strawberries and add them to a bowl. Add the granulated sugar, and vanilla and stir them together to combine.

For the Whipped Cream:

  • In a large bowl, add the heavy cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract and whip them together until soft peaks form.
  • When ready to consume, cut a biscuit in half, top the bottom half with whipped cream and strawberries. Then top with other biscuit half. Enjoy.
