A light biscuit topped with delicious strawberries.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ⅓ cup white sugar
  • 1 ½ teaspoons salt
  • ¾ cup chilled unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream
  • ¼ cup turbinado sugar
  • 8 cups sliced fresh strawberries
  • ¼ cup white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  2. 2 Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. 3 Whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, 1/3 cup white sugar, and salt in a mixing bowl.
  4. 4 Cut in cold butter with a knife or pastry blender until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. (If desired, place flour mixture into the work bowl of a food processor with the butter; pulse several times to cut butter into the flour mixture. Transfer mixture to a mixing bowl, and proceed.)
  5. 5 Stir in buttermilk until the flour mixture is moistened.
  6. 6 Drop 1/3-cup scoops of the dough 2 inches apart onto the prepared baking sheet.
  7. 7 Brush biscuits with heavy cream and sprinkle generously with turbinado sugar.
  8. 8 Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes.
  9. 9 Mix together the sliced strawberries, 1/4 cup white sugar, and lemon juice in a large bowl. Allow berries to rest until juices develop, about 30 minutes.
  10. 10 Serve the strawberries with juice over the biscuits.

  1. Tasted like biscuits.
  2. I've always had strawberry shortcake made with pound cake, sponge cake or angel food cake - never with this sweet biscuit/scone like "cake." In addition to the turbinado sugar I gave them a good sprinkle of cinnamon sugar. Nice recipe.
  3. very nice biscuit, shortcake recipe. I will not have enough strawberries for the number of biscuits (my own fault) so I added some homemade applesauce to the strawberries to stretch them out a little. No need for extra sugar this way and it is very tasty. I used a large ice cream scoop to scoop - Read more ...
  4. Great simple, easy and delicious recipe. I sliced some of the strawberries ahead of time in order for the juice to form. The only ingredient change I made was to sprinkle with light brown sugar instead of turbinado. A word of caution, watch the baking time. While the recipe does not require whipped cream, I - Read more ...
  5. perfect biscuit recipe....makes them light & airy. don't work the dough too much, drop biscuits are great. the strawberry mash is perfect. loved it all. i didn't use cream to top all of the biscuits, they tasted the same to me either way.
  6. This makes a terrific not so sweet biscuit for the sweet strawberries and the cream. Delicious! I like pound cake but prefer this old fashion cake like biscuit.
  7. Amazing. This was a perfect way to end a good meal. Make sure you use unsalted butter or omit the salt. Also if you don't have buttermilk add 1 teaspoon of vinegar to the milk. Let stand for 5 minutes before using. This is a keeper!
  8. Fantastic! These are light, wonderful shortcake biscuits. The only changes I made to the recipe was to decrease the baking powder to 3 teaspoons and I used white sugar on top of the biscuits because I did not have turbinado sugar. Just ate one with my strawberries and these are delicious! A must keep recipe!
  9. What a simple, easy, and delicious dessert! I had some buttermilk I had to use up and this was just perfect. For the shortcakes, I froze the butter and grated it which is much easier. After dropping these onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and did an egg wash (one egg well beaten - Read more ...
  10. We really enjoyed this. Cut the recipe in half for 6 servings and it worked out great. Tender, moist shortcakes with a pleasant crunch from the sanding sugar (did not have turbinado sugar). I will watch the baking time a little closer next time. Delicious at 15 minutes but I will pull them at 13 - Read more ...
