What You'll Need

  • 1 (17.3-ounce) package refrigerated biscuits (8 biscuits)

  • 3 tablespoons sugar, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup (1/2 pint) heavy cream
  • 1 quart strawberries, washed, hulled, and halved

What to Do

  1. Place biscuits on a baking sheet and brush tops with melted butter.
  2. In a small bowl, combine 1 tablespoon sugar and the cinnamon; mix well and sprinkle over tops of biscuits. Bake according to package directions and let cool.
  3. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, beat heavy cream and remaining sugar until stiff peaks form.
