Cut the strawberries into quarters and toss with 1/4 cup sugar. Let sit for a few hours to give the sugar time to extract some juice. Preheat the oven to 400F. Place a rack in the highest position.
Combine the flour, remaining 1/2 cup sugar, cornmeal, and baking powder in a mixing bowl. Add the butter and salt and cut into the flour with a pastry cutter or your fingertips. Whisk the milk together and stir into the dry ingredients.
Drop the batter onto a lightly buttered sheet pan with a tablespoon and form rounds about 3 inches in diameter. Bake for 15 min on the top rack.
Cut the biscuits in half. Top with strawberries and whipped cream.
