Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup salted butter, frozen
  • 2 1/2 cups self-rising flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons melted, salted butter
  • 1 cup chopped fresh strawberries, blueberries, or other fruit*
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream (chilled)
*Alternately, you could use jam, jelly, or preserves, even chocolate chips, peanut butter, or whatever.

Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 475°F. Using a rimmed baking sheet, either apply non-stick cooking spray or baking paper. Grate the frozen butter and toss with the flour, sugar, and baking powder. Chill 10 minutes.

2. Using the butter mixture, add the heavy cream, stir 10 times. Add the fruit and stir 5 times to make a loose, flaky dough.

3. Place the dough on a lightly floured surface, then gently knead 3 to 4 times. Lightly sprinkle flour on top.

4. Use a lightly floured rolling pin to roll the dough into a 3/4-inch-thick rectangle. Fold the dough in half so short ends meet. Repeat rolling and folding four times.

5. Roll the dough to 1-inch thickness. Cut with a round cutter and place on baking sheet. Re-roll dough scraps as needed.

6. Bake in preheated oven about 15 minutes until light brown. Brush the warm biscuits with melted butter and serve.

Final Step: VERY Important

Watch your family closely so that they do not over eat. Eating too many Tooty-Fruity Biscuits may cause abdominal swelling and sleepiness. In other words…enjoy.
