    Strawberries and whipping cream:

    3 baskets of fresh strawberries
    1/2 cup sugar
    Whipping cream
    Vanilla

    Remove the stems from the strawberries. Slice into thin (1/4" to 1/8") slices. Put into a large bowl. Add 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup of sugar (depending on how sweet the strawberries are to begin with) and mix into the strawberries. Set aside at room temperature to macerate (which means that the sugar will soften the strawberries and help release their juices).

    After the strawberries have been sitting for 20 minutes or so, take a potato masher and mash them a little. Not too much, just enough to get more juice out of them.

    Whip the cream, adding a drop or two of vanilla and a teaspoon of sugar.

    To serve, break up one biscuit per person into big pieces into a bowl. Ladle strawberries over the biscuit. Add a dolop of whipped cream.


    Gluten-free biscuits:

    1-1/2 cups Gluten Free All Purpose Baking Flour (Bob's Red Mill)
    1 Tbsp. Sugar
    2 tsp. Baking Powder
    1/4 tsp. Baking Soda
    1 tsp. Xanthan Gum
    1 tsp. Guar Gum
    1/2 tsp. Salt

    1/4 cup Shortening
    1/2 cup Milk
    1 large Egg White

    Preheat oven to 350º. Line baking sheet with parchment paper or grease lightly.

    In food processor, pulse dry ingredients (flour through salt) with shortening until mixture is consistency of small peas. Add milk and egg white. Blend until dough forms ball, scraping down sides with spatula, if necessary. Dough will be somewhat soft.

    Place dough on parchment-lined or greased baking sheet that’s been lightly dusted with rice flour. Gently pat to 3/4-inch thick circle with hands or spatula. Lightly dust dough with rice flour. Cut into ten 2-inch circles with floured biscuit cutter. Shape remaining dough to 3/4-inch thick and cut again. If dough is sticky, lightly dust with more flour. Arrange evenly on baking sheet.

    Bake 12-15 minutes or until nicely browned. Best when served warm or gently reheated in microwave oven. Serves 10. (Recipe from Bob's Red Mill)
