Gluten Free Almond-Oat Strawberry Shortcakes

Strawberries are a common occurance in this house. Mostly because the Carlsbad Strawberry farm is just down the road from us and Sprouts keeps stocked with their strawberries. A lot of time I can get 2 packages for $3. Not bad! They are not "organic", but they are tasty and really easy and affordable for me to feed the crew. Tonight what started out as dinner for the 4 of us... turned into dinner for 4 of us and 3 more of Taylor's friends. Seven. Okay...Good thing I had my strawberries all ready. This dessert was simple to make and everyone loved it. Even the friends that don't usually like "gluten free food". The shortcakes are so yummy. I will be making this on a regular basis... My husband stole 2 so I didn't get one. =(
Gluten Free Almond-Oat Strawberry Shortcakes
adapted from Epicurious.com
1 cup gluten free all-purpose flour (I recommend Maninis)
1/2 cup gluten free old-fashioned rolls oats (I recommend Bob's Red Mill)
1/3 cup slivered almonds
1/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar, divided
2 teaspoons baking powder
6 tablespoons chilled butter, cut into small cubes
1 cup chilled heavy cream, divided
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract, divided
4 cups fresh strawberries, hulled, sliced

Preheat oven to 375°. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil.

Pulse flour, oats, almonds, 1/3 cup sugar, baking powder, and salt in a food processor until finely ground. Add butter, add 1/2 cup cream and 1 tsp. vanilla; pulse until large moist clumps form. Transfer to a work surface.
Knead until dough comes together. Shape into a  rectangle. Halve lengthwise, then crosswise into thirds. Arrange on prepared baking sheet. Brush with cream; sprinkle with 1/2 Tbsp. sugar.
Bake about 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, combine strawberries and 1 Tbsp. sugar. Toss to coat. Let strawberries sit, tossing often, until juices release.
Whisk 1/2 cup cream, 1/2 Tbsp. sugar, and 1/2 tsp. vanilla in a small bowl until peaks form.
Place your biscuits on plates. Divide whipped cream and strawberries over the top and serve.
