step-by-step directions
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • 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.
  • For the Berries: Toss together berries with the juice of a lemon and sugar. Allow to sit while preparing the biscuits.
  • 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.
