- 2-3/4 cups cake flour
- 1/4 cup sugar, plus additional to sprinkle on top
- 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 10 tablespoons chilled unsalted butter, cut into 1 inch pieces
- 1 cup heavy cream, plus additional to brush on top
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment and set aside. In a food processor combine the flour, 1/4 cup sugar, baking powder and salt and pulse to combine. Add the chilled butter and process just until combined. With the motor running add the cream through the feed tube, stopping just before the dough forms a ball.
Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and gently knead, forming a smooth ball. Don’t overwork. Roll the dough out to 3/4 inch thickness and cut into 2-1/2 to 3 inch rounds.
Arrange the biscuits on the prepared tray, brush the tops with cream and sprinkle lightly with sugar. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden and firm to the touch.
Split the biscuits and pile on the berries and whipped cream.
