  1. 1 of 7 Heat oven to 450 degrees F.
  2. 2 of 7 Stir strawberries and 2 tablespoons of the sugar in a small bowl; set aside.
  3. 3 of 7 In a second small bowl, combine lemon peel and 3 tablespoons of the sugar and stir until blended; set aside.
  4. 4 of 7 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.
  5. 5 of 7 Place slices on baking sheet, reshaping to flatten slightly. Bake at 450 degrees F for 9 to 10 minutes or until golden.
  6. 6 of 7 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.
  7. 7 of 7 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.
