Ingredients
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon sugar divided
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon orange zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1 1/2 cup heavy cream divided
  • 3/4 pound strawberries hulled and chopped
Method

Preheat the oven to 400°F. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, 3 tablespoons of the sugar, baking powder, zest and salt. Stir in 3/4 cup cream with a fork to make a rough dough. Drop onto a parchment-paper-lined baking sheet to make four biscuits. Brush lightly with cream and bake until golden brown, about 25 minutes.

Whisk remaining 3/4 cup cream and 1 teasppon sugar in a large bowl until soft peaks form. Halve biscuits, spoon on whipped cream and strawberries and sandwich with tops.
