Preheat the oven to 400°F and place the oven rack in the middle of the oven.
Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper, a silicone baking mat, or butter lightly.
In a separate bowl, sift the flour, baking powder, salt and 2 Tablespoons of sugar together.
Drop the cubes of butter into the flour mixture and mix the butter in with your fingertips until the mixture is somewhat crumbly.
Add the 1 cup of milk to the flour mixture and stir with a fork until combined.
Drop dough onto a well-floured counter or wood board and knead for about 30 seconds until a dough forms.
Roll out the dough to about ¾ inch thick.
Cut rounds using a 3″ cookie cutter or the rim of a drinking glass.
Make a ball with the leftover dough and roll it out again. You should end up with 8 cut biscuits.
Place on prepared baking sheet and brush each with milk and sprinkle each biscuit liberally with remaining 1 Tablespoon of sugar.
Bake for 15 - 17 minutes until golden.
Out of the oven, cool the biscuits off the pan and on a rack.
Split in half with a fork and serve with Strawberries and Cream.
