I've got strawberries on the brain in a big way lately. Partly it's because it's almost summer and there are lots of lovely berries in the market that are far too tempting not to buy. But, I was also recently chatting with a PR representative for Driscoll's Berries. She reminded me that National Strawberry Shortcake Day is on the 14th and was also generous enough to send me some coupons for Driscoll's products.
2 1/4 Cups all purpose flour
1/4 Cup Sugar plus 1 tablespoon
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1/4 Teaspoon baking soda
1 Teaspoon salt
1 Stick unsalted butter, chilled and cut into 1" pieces
1 Cup buttermilk
1 Tablespoon cream or half & half
Strawberry Yogurt Sauce:
16 oz. Greek style yogurt
1/4 Cup sugar
1 lb. Strawberries, hulled and sliced
Make the biscuits by combining the flour, 1/4 cup of sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a bowl. Cut in the butter using a pastry cutter or fork until the mixture resembles course crumbs. Add the buttermilk and stir just until combined.
