- 800g/5 cups strawberries
- 100g/1/2 cup brown sugar
- 2 tbsp cornstarch/corn flour
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2 tbsp sweet Marsala wine optional
- 120g/1 cup flour
- 1 ½ tsp baking powder
- 50g/1/4 cup granulated white sugar
- ¼ tsp salt
- 60g/1/4 cup cold butter
- 50g/1/2 cup ground almonds
- 3-4 tbsp milk
- 1 tbsp heavy/double cream
- 2 tbsp granulated sugar
Preheat oven to 375F/190C. Hull and slice the strawberries. Combine the brown sugar and cornstarch, then mix with the strawberries. Set aside.
In a large bowl combine the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt, then cut in the cold cubed butter with a pastry blender or a fork until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add ground almonds and milk, then mix just until the dough comes together. Turn it out on a floured surface and shape into a rectangle 1 inch thick. Then cut into 12 square biscuits.
Turn the prepared strawberries into an 9-inch baking dish or a skillet, sprinkle with the Marsala wine if using. Then top with the biscuits. Brush the biscuits with the heavy/double cream and sprinkle with sugar. Bake in the preheated oven for 40-45 minutes until the biscuits are golden.
