My husband would eat dessert three meals a day if he was allowed, so he's always in favor of a sweet breakfast option.
I used my biscuits as the base, then threw together a strawberry compote-ish kinda thing. It actually came out like a really thick strawberry syrup.
Here's what I did...
I chopped about 8 strawberries in smallish chunks and put them in a small sauce pan with about half a cup of dark brown sugar. To that I added a good dash of fig infused balsamic vinegar and a wee dash of Calvados apple brandy. I stirred it occasionally and let it boil on medium heat for about 15 minutes.
Next, I whipped some heavy whipping cream in my mixer with about 2 tablespoons of powdered sugar.
I split the biscuits, buttered them and added a few spoonfuls of the strawberry mixture. I put the tops on and dolloped the whipped cream on top. I added a fresh strawberry for garnish.
These tasted really good. You could use this method to make compote/syrup out of any fruit. I think I may try blueberries next! I may even use my emulsion blender and strain out the seeds. Then I'd have a luscious fruit syrup. To eat out of the jar with a spoon. :)
