Units Scale

For the Biscuits

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon white sugar
  • Zest of 1 orange
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cut into cubes and chilled
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk

For the Strawberries

  • 4 cups strawberries, hulled and thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • Juice of 1 orange (about 3-4 tablespoons)
  • 1 tablespoon clover honey plus extra for drizzling
  • Fresh mint leaves, roughly chopped, to garnish

For the Limoncello Whipped Cream

  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon Limoncello Liqueur


Marinate the Strawberries

  1. In a medium bowl, stir together strawberries, sugar, orange juice and honey. Cover with a towel and set aside for at least 30 minutes.

Make the Biscuits

  1. Preheat oven to 450˚F. Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silpat.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking soda, sugar, orange zest, and sea salt until mixed.
  3. Add the cubed butter, and using either a pastry blender, two forks or a food processor, cut the butter into the mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs.
  4. Pour in the buttermilk and stir until just combined.
  5. Take about 1/4 cup of dough at a time into your hand and roll into a rough ball. Place the balls of dough onto the prepared baking sheet and gently flatten with your hand. You should have 6 biscuits on the baking sheet when you're finished.
  6. Bake for 18-20 minutes, until golden. Cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes.

Make the Limoncello Whipped Cream

  1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk all ingredients together until it forms soft peaks.


  1. Once the biscuits have cooled, cut them in half horizontally. Dollop a few large spoonfuls of the Limoncello whipped cream on the bottom slice of each biscuit.
  2. Top with a layer of marinated strawberries, a sprinkle of fresh mint and a drizzle of honey.
  3. Gently place the remaining biscuits on top. Enjoy!
