Ingredients

Biscuits

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup shortening
2/3 cup whipping cream
1/2 cup mini real semi-sweet chocolate chips*

Whipped Cream

1 1/3 cups whipping cream
3 tablespoons powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla

Fruit

1 pint strawberries, hulled, sliced
2 tablespoons sugar
2 bananas, peeled, sliced

Directions

Heat oven to 400°F. Combine flour, 1/2 cup sugar, baking powder and salt in large bowl. Cut in butter and shortening with pastry blender or fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in 2/3 cup whipping cream with fork just until moistened. Stir in chocolate chips. Turn dough onto lightly floured surface; knead until smooth (1 minute). Roll out dough to 3/4-inch thickness. Cut out 8 biscuits with 2 1/2-inch scalloped round cutter. Place 1 inch apart onto ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 10 to 14 minutes or until lightly browned.

Meanwhile, beat 1 1/3 cups whipping cream in small bowl at high speed, scraping bowl often, until soft peaks form. Continue beating, gradually adding powdered sugar and vanilla, until stiff peaks form.

Place sliced strawberries in medium bowl; toss with 2 tablespoons sugar. To serve, split biscuits; place onto individual dessert plates. Spoon whipped cream on bottom half of biscuits; place banana slices on whipped cream. Top with remaining half of biscuits; spoon strawberries over biscuits.

*Substitute 3 (1-ounce) squares coarsely chopped semi-sweet chocolate or 1/2 cup coarsely chopped chocolate chips.

Recipe Tip

To make chocolate whipped cream, melt 1/2 cup miniature real semi-sweet chocolate chips; cool. Add to whipping cream after stiff peaks are formed. Continue beating until well mixed.
