    My very favorite part of this video is around 6 minutes into it when I say "Hmmmm, who is the most beautiful biscuit?" and OUT OF NOWHERE Andy whips his head around as if to suggest ... himself? Classic. Andy.

              Mash the cold butter and the flour with your fingers, you are looking for small butter pieces that are incorporated into the flour. Remember to be quick because you don't want the butter to melt. Then add the heavy cream and mix until you can "nead" the dough just to incorporate everything.

                          One of the first few recipes I tried and it's cool proof. I work as a non profit in the field of HIV/AIDS. We just used this as part of a workshop for the GBQ community, where we talked about dating and cooking and how to negotiate for the kind of sex we enjoy.

                          Thank you so much for this. Everyone enjoyed themselves tremendously.

I kept trying biscuits but it’s shortbread and having part cooked strawberries and half raw strawberries! Thank you so much for teaching me this, my Grandma passed away a long time ago and I couldn’t figure it out! So many wonderful memories of that strawberry shortcake with lots of freshly made whipped cream! My Grandma was such a wonderful baker and chef! Again, thank you!
