TWD - Sweet Cream Biscuits

This week Melissa of Love At First Bite chose Sweet Cream Biscuits from page 23 of Dorie Greenspan's "Baking: From My Home to Yours". I was delighted to find the recipe for these biscuits because they use cream instead of buttermilk and I almost always have cream in the refrigerator but buttermilk ... not so much. I've made them several times and they are easy and delicious. This time around, I brushed the tops with a bit of butter and sprinkled them with turbinado sugar for strawberry shortcakes topped with brown sugar whipped cream.

Please check out the rest of the TWD group and see how they did with this week's recipe.

How beautiful! You really made these into a special dessert (and I am so stealing that turbinado sugar tip!)

Well, I've already made three batches. But now that I see I could have used them to make strawberry shortcake, I'm going to have to bake another batch! Yours look divine! Thanks for baking with me this week!
