A Wednesday Recipe - Old Fashioned Strawberry Shortcake

Old Fashioned Strawberry Shortcake

 This is another great recipe from my friend, Deborah Vogts, at Country at Heart:

6 cups fresh strawberries, sliced
1/4 - 1/2 cup sugar
2 cups flour
5 tablespoons sugar, divided
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter
1 egg
2/3 cup milk

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. In serving bowl, mix together sliced strawberries and sugar. Refrigerate until ready to serve. In medium bowl, sift together flour, 2 tablespoons sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in butter until it resembles coarse crumbs. Add beaten egg and milk. Spread dough in greased round cake pan. Sprinkle with 2-3 tablespoons sugar. Bake for 15-18 minutes until golden brown. Serve warm with strawberries and whipped topping. Delicious!

Deborah's lastest book is now available, as well.
