Homemade biscuits are one life’s greatest simple pleasures. You can’t beat a warm biscuit that melts in your mouth.

I love classic buttermilk biscuits, but I also love creating new recipes. I tweaked my favorite buttermilk drop biscuit recipe to make Strawberry Biscuits and they are SO good! They kind of remind me of Strawberry Shortcake, but in ONE biscuit!

The biscuits are buttery, tender, and dotted with juicy fresh strawberries. Oh, and that’s not all. The biscuits also have a sweet fresh strawberry glaze that is not only delicious, but is the prettiest pink color. The biscuits are beautiful and delicious!

This strawberry biscuit recipe is perfect for spring and summer when strawberries are at their peak! Serve for breakfast, brunch, or even dessert. They are also great for bridal showers, baby showers, Easter, Mother’s Day, the 4th of July, or even Valentine’s Day!

Biscuit Ingredients

  • All-purpose flour– fluff, spoon, and level the flour when measuring.
  • Baking powder & Baking soda– make sure they are fresh!
  • Granulated sugar
  • Kosher salt
  • Buttermilk– make sure you use COLD buttermilk so it will create small clumps when mixed with the butter. You want those little butter pockets in the biscuits so they are flaky and buttery.
  • Unsalted butter– melted and slightly cooled.
  • Pure vanilla extract
  • Strawberries– choose red, ripe strawberries that are sweet and juicy. Chop the strawberries in small pieces so they easily mix into the biscuit dough.
  • Turbinado sugar– the sugar adds a sweet crunch on top of the biscuits.

How to Make Strawberry Biscuits

  • Place the baking sheet in the oven, on the middle rack, and bake until the biscuit tops are golden brown, about 10 to 14 minutes. Check early by using the oven light to be safe.

Strawberry Glaze

While the biscuits are cooling, make the strawberry glaze. For the glaze you will need:

strawberry puree in food processor.
  • Place the ¼ cup of strawberries in a blender or food processor and puree until smooth.

How to Store

  • How to Store: Homemade biscuits are best the day they are made, but you can store them in an airtight container on the counter for up to 2 days.
  • How to Freeze: Let the biscuits cool completely and make sure the glaze is set. Place in a freezer bag or freezer container and freeze for up to 2 months. Thaw and enjoy! You can also freeze the biscuits without the glaze, thaw, and then make the glaze. Drizzle over biscuits and serve!

  1. I am loving all of the strawberry recipes! I used fresh berries in the biscuits and frozen for the puree. Fantastic!

  2. These look so yummy. Think I am going to substitute cornmeal for some of the flour and see what happens. I have a recipe that is similar to this one for blueberry/cornmeal drop biscuits. Fingers crossed, the strawberry/cornmeal combo will be a good one.
    Thanks for offering a jumping off place.

  3. curious if adding the strawberries in with the buttermilk mixture then adding to the dry ingredients might be throwing off my version I’m currently baking. I’ve been stirring for over 20 minutes and it’s very watery/soggy

  4. Strawberries are finally in season here! I substituted 1:1 gluten free flour and they are AMAZING! The glaze is just delicious. I’ll be making these over & over again.

  5. 4 stars
    I made these tasty biscuits with gluten free flour and they were a hit! The strawberry glaze was amazing!
