Glazed Strawberry Biscuits

Strawberry Biscuits recipe


Ugh.

Can someone please explain to me why these photos look like crap?

Strawberry Biscuits recipe

What’s that?

You think it’s because I was in such a hurry to taste these magical, fluffy little biscuits full of juicy strawberries and drizzled with a sweet glaze that I rushed through the photo session and instead just aimed, shot, and then crammed every last biscuit in my face?

You might be on to something there.

Don’t worry, though. I totally let my kids eat the leftovers. And by leftovers, I mean crumbs. #oops

Strawberry Biscuits recipe

I have a thang for biscuits, my friends, and these biscuits seriously did not dissappoint.  Not that I really worried about that much since the recipe for the biscuits came straight from Smitten Kitchen. I did top mine with a sweet glaze, but that’s only because sugar is my friend. If it’s not your friend, leave it off. Or drizzle on some honey. Or just smear on some butter. Orrrrr, you can totally bend down so that your face is directly over the pan of hot, steamy strawberry biscuits, open your mouth, and basically just inhale them as is. I mean, nobody could blame you.

Glazed Strawberry Biscuits

These biscuits are so light and fluffy with little bits of juicy berries. They make a perfect breakfast or afternoon snack.

Ingredients:

For the biscuits:
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons butter, cold
1 cup chopped very ripe strawberries
1 cup heavy cream
For the glaze:
1/4 cup powdered sugar
2 tablespoons heavy cream

Directions:

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or set aside a 12 inch cast iron skillet.

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Cut in the butter using 2 knives or a pastry blender until you mixture is crumbly with small pea-sized crumbs. Gently stir in the strawberries, so that they are coated in the dry ingredients, then stir in the heavy cream. When you’ve mixed it in as best as you can, knead it once or twice in the bowl, to create one mass. Don't worry about getting the dough evenly mixed, rather be careful not to overmix the dough.

Generously flour your counter. Transfer your dough to the counter, generously flour the top of it and with your hands or a rolling pin, gently roll or press the dough out to a 3/4-inch thickness. Cut into 2 1/2-inch circles with a floured biscuit cutter or top edge of a drinking glass, pressing straight down as you cut. Carefully transfer the biscuits to your prepared baking sheet or cast iron skillet.

Re-roll the scraps of dough and repeat. The berries will release more juice, so the second batch will be a bit more wet, but they'll still work out!

Bake the biscuits for 12 to 15 minutes, until golden at the edges and the strawberry juices are trickling out of the biscuits in places. Cool in pan for a minute, then transfer to a cooling rack.

While the biscuits are cooling, whisk together the powdered sugar and heavy cream to form a glaze. Drizzle it over the still warm biscuits and serve warm or cooled.

    Ok, I just put these in the oven and I have a question…it seemed the dough was extra wet the more I rerolled…is this right?

    [Reply]

    Karly Reply:

    Yes, ma’am! It’s just the berries releasing more juice. I think the first batch of biscuits (of any variety) are always the best (the less you work the dough, the more tender they are), but the subsequent batches will be just fine too! :)

    Ok these were AH-MAZING!!!! Have you ever had a cinnamon raisin biscuit from Hardee’s? Bc these remind me of those! I have plans for these! I want to make blackberry ones, and raspberry ones….oooh and mixed berry ones!!!

    Do you think these would freeze and reheat well? Hubs would like to take 2 each morning to work.

    [Reply]

    Karly Reply:

    Yay! Glad you liked them as much as we did!

    To be honest, I’ve never frozen biscuits. I imagine that if you cool completely, wrap with plastic wrap, and place in a freezer bag they would do fine for a few months. I’d probably thaw in the fridge overnight and then zap in the microwave or, preferably, heat them in the oven for 5-10 minutes.

    Perhaps these biscuits looked so unbelievable in person, you think your wonderful photos don’t capture their true beauty? Your photos truly capture delicious. :) Isn’t it amazing how many of us consider Smitten Kitchen the go to blog for reliable recipes? Deb is a lovely person (met her at a book signing) and a talented cook.

    I might add a little orange zest and copycat the flavor from Paneras. I wouldn’t do it to the whole batch, for fear of ruining your already perfect recipe!

    The kids don’t deserve the crumbs… What crumbs? Shoot, these look so deluscious, so bombtastalicious, (yes, I created a word for it!), id have a hard time not licking the cast iron clean! Hmmm.. Wonder about cane berries in here.. Black, raspberries, etc…

    Just made them!! Oh. my. GOSH! So freakin good!! If the milk made any difference in texture then it’s not a bad change. I, of course, haven’t had them with heavy cream but if you only have milk it will still be DIVINE!!! The glaze probably isn’t as thick, but still so dang tasty!! This will be in the rotation every time I get a massive deal on strawberries like the one I just got. (8 pounds for $7, very few bad berries)
