Tools Needed:

Baking Sheet

Kitchen scale (optional)

Biscuit cutter or thin rimmed drinking glass

Measuring cups and spoons

Bowl to mix wet and dry ingredients in



2 cups of flour (240 g)

1 Tbsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1/3 cup + 1 Tbsp (79 g) granulated sugar

1 1/4 + 1 tablespoon (315 ml) cups cold heavy whipping cream

1 1/4 cups (30 g) freeze dried strawberries (I get mine from Trader Joe's)

* You will also need additional heavy cream (~ 2 Tbsp) and granulated sugar (~ 1/2 cup) set aside


1/2 cup (60 g) confectioners' sugar

1 1/2 Tbsp. heavy whipping cream

1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract

* If you bake a lot, I HIGHLY recommend buying vanilla in bulk. It will save you a lot in the long run. Here is what I use - Vanilla Extract


  • Preheat oven to 425 °F and make sure the oven rack is in the middle of your oven.

  • Crumble your freeze dried strawberries into a large bowl and add the rest of the dry ingredients to the bowl. Mix dry ingredients together with a whisk or fork so everything is evenly combined. Pour in your cold heavy cream and mix until your dough JUST comes together.

  • Roll dough out on top of a thin layer of granulated sugar (just like you would roll something on a floured surface) into about 3/4 inch. Dough will be sticky.

  • Cut into a biscuit with either a cookie cutter/biscuit cutter or a thin rimmed drinking glass.

  • Brush the top of each biscuit with additional cream and sprinkle with sugar.

  • Bake in your preheated oven for about 11-14 minutes or until the surface is just turning golden brown.

  • Let biscuits cool for about 30 minutes and in the meantime, mix together glaze

  • Glaze biscuits in whatever design you would like and you can also (optionally) sprinkle additional dried strawberry crumbs/powder on top
