Strawberry Shortcake with Buttermilk Biscuits

We love strawberry shortcake in our house. I have several versions of this recipe on my blog already, but I'm always looking for an excuse to make something new! I loved this buttermilk biscuit version and will keep it in mind for a quick, easy shortcake recipe the next time the mood strikes.

Baby girl loves strawberries! Probably her favorite fruit (besides bananas)! She was happy to "help" with pictures for this one. The strawberries are juicy and the buttermilk biscuit has a nice crunch on top from the sugar, a mild sweetness, and some "tang" from the buttermilk. Fantastic combination!

Strawberry Shortcake with Buttermilk Biscuits from on AllRecipes
3 cups all-purpose flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/3 cup white sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
3/4 cup chilled unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
1 cup buttermilk
2 tablespoons heavy cream
1/4 cup turbinado sugar 

For the strawberries
8 cups sliced fresh strawberries
1/4 cup white sugar
1 tablespoon lemon juice 

  1. Mix together the sliced strawberries and 1/4 cup white sugar in a tupperware, shake to combine and allow to rest in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes - the longer the better to allow them time to create juice. Shake tupperware occasionally to redistribute the sugar as needed.
  2. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
  3. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  4. Whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, 1/3 cup white sugar, and salt in a mixing bowl.
  5. Cut in cold butter with a pastry blender until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. 
  6. Stir in buttermilk until the flour mixture is moistened.
  7. Drop 1/3-cup scoops of the dough 2 inches apart onto the prepared baking sheet. (I patted my dough out and used a biscuit cutter for evenly sized biscuits).
  8. Brush biscuits with heavy cream and sprinkle generously with turbinado sugar (if you don't have it, regular sugar is ok too).
  9. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes.
  10. Serve the strawberries with juice over the biscuits.
