Use a spoon or spatula to try to spread the cream cheese mixture into a thin layer over the top of the strawberries.

In a bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and 3 teaspoons of the sugar. Cut in the butter with a pastry cutter or a fork until it resembles coarse crumbs. Add in the buttermilk and stir just until moistened – do not overmix. Add more buttermilk if the mixture is too dry.

Drop rounded tablespoons of the topping over the strawberries and cream mixture. Sprinkle the remaining 2 teaspoons of sugar over the top.
