Strawberry Shortcake

Strawberry Shortcake

2 cups flour
1 Tb. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1/3 cup shortening or butter
¾ cup milk or cream
1/4 cup sugar
Sugar crystals 

Mix dry ingredients and cut in shortening. (If you want to substitute margarine for shortening, omit the salt.) Stir in milk with a fork. Knead 10 to 12 times, just until the dough sticks together. Do not handle  too much. Roll out ½ inch thick. Cut out circles. Sprinkle sugar crystals on top.  Bake 10 to 12 minutes at 450°. Makes about 9-12 cakes.

Becky's Notes: This is another revision of our basic biscuit recipe.  I always thought strawberry shortcake sounded so lovely (rather like Turkish Delight which sounds really fancy until you actually eat it--gag).  When I started looking at recipes I quickly realized that Strawberry Shortcake is a sweet biscuit with cream and strawberries in the middle.  Although it is good, in my opinion, it doesn't live up to its name!
