Tea biscuit with fresh cut strawberries and whip cream!

Coconut Tea Biscuits:


Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Lightly grease cookie sheet(s) and set aside.

Mix dry ingredients together and cut in oil with pastry cutter or use your hands until just blended. Beat egg in separate bowl. Add milk and egg to dry ingredients. Mix until just blended. Don't overwork dough.

Roll out dough to 2 inch thickness. Cut out biscuits with biscuit cutter or use a small drinking glass. Bake for 10-12 minutes in preheated oven on the prepared cookie sheets until tops are golden brown. Cool biscuits on cooling rack.

Cut up fresh strawberries or any cut fruit of your choice. Whip heavy cream with vanilla extract and sweeten to taste with sweetener of your choice. Cut tea biscuits in half and top with the berries and cream. Enjoy!

Note: A guest said those are the best biscuits she ever tasted, what's my secret? I said Tropical Traditions coconut oil!

I just made the biscuit portion and they are very good. I just need whipping cream to make the whipped cream and we'll be ready.

Can you leave out the shredded coconut and just add more flour? I don't have anyone here thrilled with shredded coconut

I am a diabetic but LOVE strawberry short cake. I cannot have brown/white sugar, nor regular flour sooo I just use coconut flour for the cake part, and processed shredded coconut, stevia, and cinnamon for the brown sugar bottom. Then everything else the same. Tastes great, and I can have it with no problems.

Baking powder amount is too much. That is all I could taste.
Maybe it should read 2 teaspoons instead of Tablespoons????

I would like to ask the same question about the baking powder. Am afraid to make the biscuits without knowing. That was the first thing that caught my attention when reading the recipe...

2 tablespoons is correct (this makes a larger batch than the usual biscuit recipe which will generally call for 1 1/2 cups flour) but you can always skimp on the baking powder if you're worried.

one more quick question...have you tried this with Einkorn flour?? Or would it be too heavy?
# Posted By Linda B | 3/13/14 2:23 PM
Linda - this should work well with Einkorn! Go for it - but be prepared to use a bit more flour if needed (30-50%) and try not to handle the dough as much as Einknorn will toughen up much quicker than regular wheat.
