  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

  2. Cut butter into flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt until it resembles fine crumbs. Stir in buttermilk just until blended.  Dump dough out of bowl onto a floured surface. Knead about 5 times. Pat out to 1/2 inch thickness and cut with a cutter about 3 inches in diameter. Place about an inch apart on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.

  3. Bake until golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes. Split with fork fill with strawberries and top with whipped cream.
