Macerated Strawberries

  • 3/4 lb Strawberries hulled and sliced
  • 1/3 cup Sugar


  • 1/2 cup Flour
  • 1/2 cup Bisquick
  • 1 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/8 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/8 tsp Salt
  • 1 tbsp Sugar
  • 2 tbsp Cold Butter
  • 3 oz Milk
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla
  • 1 tbsp Powdered Sugar

Whipped Cream

  • 3/4 cup Heavy Cream
  • 5 tbsp Powdered Sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla


  • In a medium bowl, combine strawberries and sugar and toss to coat.
  • Refrigerate for at least several hours to allow syrup to develop.
  • If you do not have enough time, take several more strawberries, puree, and add to the bowl.
  • Preheat oven to 450.
  • In a large bowl, sift together the Bisquick, flour, baking soda, baking powder, sugar, and salt.
  • Cut butter into pats and add to dry ingredients.
  • Using a pastry cutter, cut in the butter until small "pebbles" are formed.
  • Add vanilla to milk.
  • Gradually pour in the milk while stirring with a spoon until just combined.
  • If the dough is too wet, add a little more flour, just until the dough is able to be handled.
  • Turn out onto a floured surface, dust top with flour, and form into just over 1/2" thickness.
  • Cut circular shape with a biscuit cutter, jar lid, or drinking glass. Dip cutter in flour as necessary to avoid sticking.
  • Place biscuits on a baking sheet.
  • Bake for 10-15 minutes until tops are lightly browned.
  • Brush tops with melted butter and dust with powdered sugar. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine heavy cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla.
  • Whip until firm peaks form.
  • Transfer to a piping bag and set aside.
  • Using a serrated knife, cut each biscuit in half.
  • Take about 1/8 of macerated strawberries and place them on each biscuit bottom.
  • Top each with whipped cream then add another layer of strawberries.
  • Place biscuit tops on top of each.
  • Pipe whipped cream on each and garnish with a strawberry.
  • Refrigerate until ready to serve.
