Drop dough by 1/3 cupfuls about 2 inches apart onto parchment paper-lined baking sheet, forming 8 biscuits. Flatten each biscuit slightly into a 2-inch round
Bake about 18 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on wire rack. Meanwhile, toss strawberries with granulated sugar and tequila in large bowl. Let stand 15 minutes, tossing occasionally
To serve, split biscuits. Place 1 biscuit bottom on each plate. Top each with about 1/2 cup strawberry mixture and biscuit top.
