Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes
Servings: 6


  • 4 cups strawberries, sliced
  • 14 cup sugar
  • 14 cup butter, frozen
  • 1 14 cups self-rising flour
  • 12 cup chilled buttermilk
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 2 cups vanilla Greek yogurt
  • Fresh mint (optional)


  1. Preheat over to 475°.
  2. Combine strawberries and sugar in a small bowl and let stand 20-30 minutes.
  3. Grate frozen butter using large holes of a box grater. Toss together grated butter and flour in a medium bowl. Chill 10 minutes.
  4. Make a well in center of mixture. Add buttermilk and stir 15 times. Dough will be sticky. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Lightly sprinkle flour over top of dough. Using a lightly floured rolling pin, roll dough into a 3/4-inch-thick rectangle. Fold dough in half, so short ends meet. Repeat rolling and folding process four more times.
  5. Roll dough to 1/2-inch thickness. Cut with a 2 1/2-inch floured round cutter, reshaping scraps and flouring as needed.
  6. Place dough rounds on a parchment paper-lined jelly-roll pan. Bake at 475° for 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Brush with melted butter.
  7. Split biscuits in half. Spoon strawberries evenly over bottom halves of biscuits and top with a dollop of yogurt. Top with remaining biscuit halves. Garnish with fresh mint, if desired.
