To make these cute shortcakes, the dough is rolled into a rectangle, sprinkled with lemon peel and sugar, rolled up, sliced, and baked. The lemony spirals are superb with fresh strawberries and cream.

Recipe from 
Servings: 8 servings

1-1/2  pounds  strawberries, washed, hulled and sliced
7  tablespoons  sugar
2  teaspoons  grated lemon peel
2-1/2  cups  biscuit mix (such as Bisquick)
2/3  cup  plus 1 tablespoon milk
1  cup  heavy cream
Heat oven to 450 degrees F.
Stir strawberries and 2 tablespoons of the sugar in a small bowl; set aside.
In a second small bowl, combine lemon peel and 3 tablespoons of the sugar and stir until blended; set aside.
In large bowl, stir together biscuit mix and 2/3 cup of the milk until a soft dough forms. Turn out onto a well-floured surface. Roll into an 18 x 8-inch rectangle, about 1/4 inch thick. Brush with remaining 1 tablespoon milk, then sprinkle with lemon-sugar mixture. Roll up, starting at a short end. Cut into 8 slices, each about 1 inch thick.
Place slices on baking sheet, reshaping to flatten slightly. Bake at 450 degrees F for 9 to 10 minutes or until golden.
While biscuits cool, beat heavy cream and remaining 2 tablespoons sugar in a medium-size bowl with an electric mixer on high until stiff peaks form.
Split biscuits in half horizontally. For each serving, place one biscuit bottom on plate and spoon a scant 1/4 cup strawberries over top; dollop 2 tablespoons whipped cream over strawberry slices. Cover with biscuit top and repeat with another layer of strawberries and whipped cream.
