While the biscuits are baking prepare the strawberries. Cut two 1/2 inch slices from each strawberry.

Once the biscuits are baked, transfer to a cooling rack and let them cool completely before constructing the skewers.

Then start layering; biscuit, strawberry, whipped cream. Do this twice ending with a third biscuit on top. One can of biscuits made 20 skewers.
