How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 400°F.

    Combine flour, 1/2 cup sugar, baking powder and salt in 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.

  7. STEP 7

    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.
