Buttermilk Biscuit Strawberry Shortcake

Recipe Source: Popeye’s website

Prep/Cooking Time: Total prep and cooking time: 3 hours


12 Popeye’s biscuits
1-1/4 cups granulated sugar
3 pints fresh strawberries
1 quart heavy cream
1/2 cup 10x confectioner’s sugar
12 ounce tub whipped topping (optional)


Strawberry Topping:
Rinse, hull and thinly slice 2 pints of strawberries. Wash and hull the third pint and add only 1/4 cup of granulated sugar. Mash or pulse a few times in a mixer or blender. Cover and hold mashed product in refrigerator for 2 hours before serving.

Go to your local Popeye’s restaurant and pick up a dozen biscuits. Take a baking pan and sprinkle with 1 cup of granulated sugar. Place your biscuits top side down on the pan. Then place the biscuits in a 200 degree oven on the bottom rack. Bake until sugar caramelizes to the biscuit tops – approximately 20 minutes.

Whipped Topping:
To make topping from scratch: Add the heavy cream and half a cup of powdered sugar. Whip the cream and sugar to stiff peaks.

(If you prefer, you can use a 12 oz. tub of whipped topping instead of making it from scratch.)

Present on a dessert or Bread and Butter plate. Cut the biscuit in half and place bottom on plate. Place 3 heaping spoons of strawberries on top of the biscuit bottom, then 2 heaping spoons of whipped cream. Place the biscuit top over the whipped cream, then another 2 heaping spoons of strawberries and a dollop of whipped cream.

Serve and eat!
