Ingredients

1 3/4 cup flour

2 tablespoons sugar, and 2 additional tablespoons

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 tablespoon baking powder

1/2 stick unsalted sweet butter, chilled

1/2 cup light cream

Topping:

4 cups mixed berries, fresh or frozen, thawed and drained

Whip cream

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Sift flour, sugar, salt and baking powder together into a large bowl. Using a pastry blender or two knives, cut the butter into the dry ingredients until mixture resembles peas. Pour in the cream and stir in with a fork until the dough comes together. Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface to about a 1/2 inch thickness. Cut out 3" circles with a cutter or a glass. Repeat process until most of the dough is used.
  2. Transfer rounds to a greased baking sheet. Sprinkle tops with extra sugar and bake for 10 minutes, or until golden brown.
  3. Assemble dessert by slicing biscuits in half and topping with mixed berries. Replace top half and top with more berries. Top with whipped cream
