This recipe is from the Crescent City Farmer's Market and is DELICIOUS. I had never considered combining cranberries with strawberries but I'm so glad I did when I found this recipe!!! It is from Chef Kristen Essig of Nola Bean

Directions See How It's Made
- To prepare Cranberry Coulis: In blender container, combine cranberry sauce, confectioners’ sugar, and satsuma juice; purée until smooth. Combine coulis and strawberries; toss to mix. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
- To prepare Drop Biscuits: Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
- In the bowl of a food processor, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; pulse together for 30 seconds. Add butter and pulse two to three times in 10-second intervals until butter is cut into the flour. Transfer mixture to a large mixing bowl.
- In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together milk, sour cream, vanilla, and satsuma zest. Fold milk mixture into flour mixture and mix well. Drop tablespoonfuls of the batter onto prepared sheet pan, then sprinkle with turbinado sugar. Bake at 425 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack.
- To serve, split biscuits and fill with marinated berries. Top with whipped cream.
- Note: The cranberry coulis can also be used to garnish many Christmas pies and cakes—or to sweeten champagne cocktails (1 to 1-1/2 tablespoons per glass).
