bridget asked me to post the recipe for the shortcake that I made this weekend. Here ya go:
3 cups self rising flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 T sugar
1 cup crisco
melted butter for tops
milk to moisten
in a large bowl, mix flour, baking powder and sugar. Using a pastry blender cut crisco into dry ingredients until well blended (it will get sandy looking)
you can put this dry mix into a bag in the refrigerator and keep indefinitely
mix with a small amount of milk and then turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead lightly. pat to 1/2 inch thickness and cut into rounds about 3 inches thick.
brush with butter and bake at 450 for about 10 minutes. tops will be brown. Best eaten warm…they tend to dry out once cool.
cut berries and mix with a little sugar…they’ll release their juices and get even more yummy
make whipped cream: whip heavy cream with a little sugar and vanilla until VERY stiff. be careful not to make butter
assemble biscuit on bottom, next strawberries and then (at last) a big dollop of whipped cream
Sorry I did not take pictures of the process. it was beautiful AND delicious.
