  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons salted butter , cold
  • 2 tablespoons milk (if dough appears too dry, add 1/2 tablespoon more milk)
  • 1/4 cup strawberries , sliced
  • whipped cream (*see notes)
  • powdered sugar (optional)


  • Heat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  • Whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt in a small bowl.
  • Cut cold butter into the flour mixture using either a pastry blender or your hands until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  • Pour in the milk and stir until just combined. Spoon onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or silpat and shape into a circle.
  • Bake for 12-15 minutes or until top is golden.
  • Remove from oven and cool for 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, make the whipped cream if you are making it yourself.
    Pour the cream and the sugar in a small mixing bowl. Whisk just until the cream reaches soft peaks, 2-4 minutes. Store any unused portion in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
  • Slice the biscuit in half, spoon sliced strawberries on the bottom half and top with whipped cream. Top with remaining biscuit half.
  • Dust top with powdered sugar, if desired.


Use either store bought or homemade whipped cream.
