Whipped Cream

  • 1 c heavy cream
  • 2 Tbsp honey
  • ½ tsp pure vanilla extract

Garnish

Directions

Biscuits
Combine all dry ingredients in a large bowl. Add cream and mix until the dough comes together. Powder hands with flour then divide the dough into 8 equal pieces. Place each piece onto a baking tray lined with baking paper. Slightly flatten each piece. Brush each biscuit with cream then sprinkle with nutmeg and sugar. Top each one with almonds. Bake at 350 degrees for 18 -20 minutes.

Strawberries
Cut off tops and quarter strawberries. In a blender, puree a quarter of the berries with sugar and lemon zest. Combine puree with remaining cut berries one hour before serving.

Whipped Cream
Place heavy cream, honey and vanilla in a small bowl or mixer and whip cream to a soft peak.

To plate, slice biscuit in half and fill with strawberries. Top with a big dollop of whipped cream then sprinkle with powdered sugar. Garnish with a sprig of fresh mint.
