This is my Papa Jack’s recipe that he taught me when I was a little girl. Using half and half instead of whipped cream is so much easier and delicious. —Hannah Williams, Malibu, California

  • 2-1/2 cups buttermilk pancake mix
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup butter, diced
  • 3 cups mixed berries
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 pint half and half


  1. Mix pancake mix, milk, and butter together until a dough forms. Drop 1/3 cup portions onto a baking sheet, and bake at 425 for 10-12 minutes (until just slightly brown on top). No need to shape the biscuits. Toss the berries in the sugar. Place 5 biscuits in a bowl, divide the berries and half and half evenly, and pour over the biscuits.
