I'm back with a recipe for another tasty dessert - strawberry shortcake! I used the recipe from The American Woman's Cook Book to make this.
- 2 cups flour
- 4 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 tbsp sugar
- 1/3 cup shortening
- 3/4 cup milk
- 3 cups sliced strawberries
- Whipped Cream
- 1 cup cold heavy whipping cream
- 2 tbsp. sugar
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
Yield: 4 servings
Gradually add milk gradually to make a soft dough.
Turn out on lightly floured board and knead just enough to shape into smooth ball.
Roll or pat lightly 1/2 inch thick. Cut with floured biscuit cutter into fourths and shape into large biscuits.
Brush tops with butter and place on cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake at 450ºF for 15 minutes.
Put together again with filling of strawberries.
Make the whipped cream by beating the heavy whipping cream, sugar, and vanilla extract with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form (about 1 minute).
Top with whipped cream and more fruit. Then enjoy!
