Summery Sweet Strawberry Shortcakes

Freshly baked sweet biscuits, like these (with chopped fresh thyme and rosemary added to the batter if you like)
Heavy cream
Chopped fresh basil (optional)

1. Sprinkle the washed, hulled berries with a tbsp of sugar plus some chopped basil and let it sit for about 15 mins.

2. Whip the cream with some sugar till it reaches soft peaks.

3. Pull apart the fresh biscuits. Pile on some strawberries on the bottom half of a biscuit. Plop a dollop of whipped cream on top. Then put the biscuit lid on the whole concoction and dig in. If you must, assemble the remaining shortcakes for the rest of your starving, free-loading friends.
