BISCUITS AND BERRIES





And he did.......
a summer's end trip to Hilton Head was just what the doctor ordered.....
we only have one rule....no watches!
 Relax, breathe softly, nap in a hammock.....eat deliciously......



 
WHIPPING CREAM BISCUITS
1 cup butter or margarine
4 cups self-rising flour
 2 cups whipping cream
1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted

 

Cut 1 cup butter into flour with a pastry blender or fork until crumbly. Add whipping cream, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened.
Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead lightly 3 or 4 times. Roll or pat dough to 3/4-inch thickness. Cut with a 2-inch round cutter, and place biscuits on a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake at 400° for 13 to 15 minutes. Brush warm biscuits with 1/2 cup melted butter.

STRAWBERRIES
3 pints of fresh strawberries
1/2 cup sugar

Remove the stems from the strawberries. Slice into thin slices. Put into a large bowl. Add 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup of sugar.  Set aside at room temperature to macerate.
After the strawberries have been sitting for 20 minutes, take a fork and mash them gently.  Cover and refrigerate until ready to assemble your dessert.

  1. Oh my...now that is what I call a hammock! I'd never get up from there the entire time! Glad you were able to get away!
