Preparation Time: 15 minutes
- 1 lb fresh strawberries, chopped into chunks
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 2 cups heavy cream
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- sugar to taste
- 1/4 cup coconut flour
- 3/4 cup brown rice flour
- 3/4 cup tapioca starch/flour
- 1-3 tablespoons sugar or honey
- 1 1/2 teaspoons xanthan gum
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 5 tablespoons salted butter
- 3/4 cup milk or heavy cream
- 1 egg, lightly beaten
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Mix the strawberries with the honey until well blended. Set aside.
Whisk all dry ingredients for the biscuits in a bowl. Cut in butter until very well blended (no big chunks). Stir in milk and egg and mix until a moist dough comes together.
Dust a surface with tapioca starch and turn the dough out. Fold over several times and pat into desired thickness (they will not rise too much). Cut with a biscuit cutter and place on a cookie sheet.
Bake in preheated oven for 12-15 minutes, until bottoms are lightly browned. Cool completely before serving.
Whip the heavy cream with vanilla and sugar until soft peaks form. Slice biscuits in half and top with strawberries and whipped cream to serve.
