Lori's Strawberry LOL
This is a yummy variation of strawberry shortcake which my family begs me to make. I got the recipe from a friend who calls it Strawberry LOL. LOL stands for Little Old Lady. My friend said she had no name for the recipe and her dil said it should be called LOL cuz it seemed like the kind of thing little old ladies make. This makes no sense to either of us but it has always been Strawberry LOL at our house, as in, "Mommy, could we please have Strawberry LOL for breakfast tomorrow?", etc. etc. I have served this for both breakfast and as a dessert for company after a light salad meal. It is also wonderful and easy to substitute other berries or fresh, sliced peaches for the strawberries.
Strawberry LOL makes about 10; serves?
10 uncooked canned "Grands" biscuits or 1 recipe homemade biscuit dough cut into rounds (using homemade dough takes this dish from yummy to sublime!)
melted butter or margarine (a generous half stick)
granulated sugar (start w/ 1/2c. and add more as needed)
1 pt.light cream or half and half (probably won't use it all)
Dip biscuit rounds into melted butter and then into sugar, coating both sides. Place in a pan so they are lightly touching. Bake at 450 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Meanwhile, wash and slice strawberries (about 1 qt. for 10-12 biscuits). Sweeten them with about 1/3 c. granulated sugar. Set aside so they can give off their juice.
Get everyone to the table just before the biscuits come out of the oven. Pray. (These are best eaten immediately.) To serve, place a biscuit or two on a plate, top generously with strawberries (hear the sizzle?), and pour on a couple of tablespoons of cream. Eat with a smile on your face and give thanks for strawberries!
