Yay Strawberry Season! Part 3

Strawberry Shortcake Recipe

1/4 c. sugar

2 c. flour

2 t. baking powder

1 t. salt

1/4 t. soda

6 T. shortening

3/4 c. buttermilk

Sift dry ingredients.  Cut in shortening.  Add milk and stir with fork.  Put dough in two round, glass pie pans.  Bake in 450 degree oven for 10 minutes or until golden brown.

Strawberry Topping:

Crush about 1/2 lb of strawberries (I use a potato masher).  Add half-and-half (don’t ask me how much… I really don’t know…about 1 cup?) and sugar to taste.

To Thoroughly Enjoy:

Cut yourself a wedge of shortcake and slice it through the middle as if to make two pieces of “bread” for a strawberry sandwich.  Layer some delicious strawberry slurry/topping stuff on the bottom layer of shortcake.  Put the top back on.  Add more strawberry goodness.  Add dollop of whipped cream.  Taste heaven in strawberry form!
