In a container with a lid, place strawberries, and sprinkle sugar over the strawberries. Let sugar marinate over the strawberries for a couple of hours before using. Sift together flour, salt, and baking powder. Stir heavy cream into sifted flour, and mix gently until the flour is just incorporated. Gently knead and shape into 4 equal sized biscuits.
Make four biscuits with dough, and place on a greased cookie sheet. If you have some dusting sugar, sprinkle a little onto the biscuits. Bake for approximately 10 to 15 minutes, the biscuits will be golden brown when done. Shortcake Assembly 1 biscuit 1 scoop Hagan Daas Vanilla Ice Cream Strawberries Whipped cream Slice shortcake in half, lay bottom of shortcake in a plate, then add a scoop of ice cream, a spoonful of strawberries, top with biscuit and whipped cream.
Add additional strawberries to the plate around the biscuit. This is a great dessert to make ahead of time, and assemble the shortcakes right before dinner. I think if you added blackberries, or even blueberries to the mixture you would have a wonderful new creation.
