2 pounds strawberries trimmed and quartered (6 cups)
1 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup cornstarch
1 teaspoon couse salt
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 3/4 cups flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 3/4 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon coarse salt
6 tablespoons cold unsalted butter cut into pieces
1 cup heavy cream plus more for brushing
Sanding sugar for sprinkling optional
Heavy cream or ice cream for serving (optional)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees with racks in middle and bottom. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and place on bottom rack to catch any juices that might bubble over. Stir together berries, sugar, cornstarch, salt, and lemon juice. Transfer to a 2 1/2-quart baking dish.

Whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in butter until the largest pieces are the size of small peas. Add cream, and use a fork to incorporate, stirring until a soft sticky dough forms. Dollop dough over filling, dividing evenly into 9 pieces. Brush with cream and sprinkle with sugar.

Bake until biscuits are golden brown and filling is bubbling in the center, about 1 hour and 10 minutes. Cool at least 1 hour before serving. Serve warm or room temperature with a scoop of ice cream or drizzled with heavy cream, if desired.
