  • 1
     
    Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • 2
    2 cups All-Purpose Flour (plus more for bench flour)
    4 teaspoons Baking Powder
    2 tablespoons Sugar
    1 teaspoon Lemon zest
    1 teaspoon Salt
    5 tablespoons Butter (cut into pats)
    1/2 cup Plain Yogurt
    2/3 cup Milk
    For the Drop Biscuits: In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, sugar, lemon zest and salt. Add the pats of butter and cut in using your hands or a pastry blender. Combine until the butter is blended and the mixture is crumbly. In a medium bowl, stir together the yogurt and milk. Pour into the flour mixture and work together until incorporated. Add flour as needed but dough should still be moderately sticky.

    Using a 3-ounce ice cream scoop, drop balls of dough into a small bowl of bench flour one at a time. Working with your hands, loosely shape the dusted ball and place on the baking sheet. Repeat with remaining dough spacing about 2 inches apart on the baking sheet. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until light golden brown on top.

    Remove from oven and allow to cool slightly. Cut into top and bottom halves with a serrated knife. Place strawberries in between the halves. Serve with a large dollop of sweetened whipped cream and a dusting of powdered sugar.
  • 5
    1 pound Strawberries (thinly sliced)
    juice of a Lemon
    1 teaspoon Sugar (optional)
    For the Berries: Toss together berries with the juice of a lemon and sugar. Allow to sit while preparing the biscuits.
  • 6
    3/4 cup Heavy Cream
    1 tablespoon Powdered Sugar (plus more to garnish)
    For the Whipped Cream: Whisk the heavy cream in a chilled bowl until foamy. Sprinkle in the sugar and continue to whip until medium peaks form. Whip for 15 more seconds. Re-whip when ready to serve.

    Helpful Tips:
    1. Rather than sifting your flour, mix the dry ingredients with a whisk to break up any flour lumps.
    2. Make sure the biscuit dough is wet enough so that it will create steam while baking, resulting in light, flakey biscuits.
