INGREDIENTS

    For the berry mixture:

  • 1 cup California Giant quartered strawberries
  • 1 cup California Giant blueberries
  • 1 cup California Giant blackberries
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • For the biscuits:

  • * If you are short on time, store bought biscuits work really well too!
  • 2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 T sugar
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 ½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ cup cold butter, diced (kept very cold!)
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • ½ cup sprite or sparkling water
  • 2 T butter, melted

DIRECTIONS

      • Preheat oven to 400 degrees with medium cast iron pan inside
      • Remove the cast iron pan after preheated and place on burner over high heat
      • Add berries and sugar, and stir.
      • Allow to simmer over medium heat for 10 minutes
      • Meanwhile, place the flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, and baking soda in a food processor. Pulse until combined.
      • Add the diced cold butter to the flour mixture and pulse until pea sized clumps.
      • Scrape mixture into large bowl.
      • Add sour cream and soda and stir until well combined, but don’t overmix.
      • Dust a cutting board with flour and scrape out the biscuit dough onto it.
      • Pat it out until about 1 inch thick, dusting with more flour if needed.
      • Punch out the dough with a round cookie cutter and cover the berry mixture in the cast iron pan with punched out biscuits. If you don’t have a cookie cutter, no worries, just cut into large squares.
      • Brush the tops of the biscuits with a little bit of melted butter.
      • Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes or until light golden brown.
      • Remove from oven and allow to slightly cool.
      • Spoon into a bowl and top with ice cream!
