Recipe – Strawberry Biscuit

Recipe - Strawberry Biscuit

Once it’s spring/summer, strawberries tend to find their way into almost every dish – salads, desserts, beverages. Yes! They usually appear, often taking center stage. Strawberry fruits and biscuits go together so quickly and easily.

Do you have too many strawberries? Then make this set of bright and beautiful biscuits – strawberry biscuits.  And you can swap out the strawberries with the other berries – raspberries, blackberries, blueberries.  The recipe is quick and easy to cook and is the perfect place to start for beginner cooks.

This recipe is a particularly good way to use those extra berries you need to use before they spoil. Be sure to use the more fragile/almost over-ripe berries because they work best, almost melting away into the baked goods. The firmer stock of strawberries, though equally healthy and delicious are less likely to melt and tickle.

The choice is yours.

Vanilla, pure extract1 teaspoon    5g
Strawberries, diced2/3  cup   150g

Recipe Instructions:

Pre-Heat The Oven:

  • As your oven preheats to 350 degrees F (177 C), line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set it aside.

Mix Dry Ingredients:

  • Mix the dry ingredients: All-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together inside one medium-sized bowl and also set it aside.

Mix The Other Ingredients:

  • Mix the other ingredients: butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar together using another large bowl. Ensure that everything is evenly incorporated, appearing creamy.
  • Now, add the beaten egg and yolk, pure vanilla and mix until the whole lot is also evenly blended.

Combine Wet & Dry Ingredients:

  • Slowly stir in the dry ingredients into the wet one until both combine enough to form a batter.
  • Add the diced strawberry and get them folded into the dough being careful not to over mix so that the strawberries don’t become mashed up in the process (save a few with which to top your dough balls later to give it a bright redness.

Refrigerate:

  • Cover the dough and refrigerate for a minimum of 30 minutes. (This helps the strawberries to make the dough wet; and the wetter the dough, the more the biscuits spread.

Break The Dough:

  • Cut and roll the dough into small-sized balls and place them on your baking sheet.
  • Bake until the edges are a golden brown.

Cool The Biscuits:

  • Remove the baked biscuits from the oven and allow to cool on the baking sheet.
  • When relatively cool, transfer to the wire rack for complete cooling before use /storage.

Now you have a strawberry biscuit that’s both crispy on the edges and cherry at the center.

Note: You can make a quick strawberry butter for slathering on the biscuits ‘ tops using this recipe:

Ingredients:

  • 1/8 cup strawberry
  • 4 tablespoons of soft butter.

Directions:

  • While the biscuit is baking, mash up the strawberries into the soft butter.
  • Freeze for about 20 minutes.

Note: This is a little difference that makes a world of difference in flavor.

  • Best eaten hot out of the oven.
  • Can be served warm.
  • Can be used with Basil Honey Butter.
  • Can be served laced with fresh strawberries.

  1. First of all I would like to say fantastic blog!
    I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts
    before writing. I have had a hard time clearing my thoughts in getting
    my thoughts out. I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted simply
    just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or tips?
    Cheers!

    1. My approach is straightforward and very old school. My biggest problem is time to do the writing my three blogs are hobbies for me. I have a day (and then some) job as a Tech consultant. Basically, I follow this pattern:
      1) I capture my ideas as I have them and write one or two short line as for a frame of reference.
      2) Organized according to when I want to write them, with some lead time, of course.
      3) I outline my header levels/titles ( I never write without an outline, even the small stuff). It has become second-nature for me.
      4) I write without editing or spell checking until I run out of information.
      5) I edit, spellcheck and format
      6) Go get my pictures and graphics to flesh it out.
      7) I check my base keyword lists and add additional words appropriate to the content.
      8) I choose my categories; paying attent to the hierarchy, so, I don’t miss any parent-child relationships.
      9) choose the social network site, if any, I think it should be published to.

      I have a writing blog where you may find other helpful information. The blog is fairly young but growing:
      Writing and The Written Word – Thoughts on reading, writing, and publishing
      https://writingandthewrittenword.blog/

      I wouldn’t normally advertise my blogs, but since you asked about writing, I thought it might be appropriate.
