The recipe I'm posting is one that I found on the All Recipes website! Strawberries are on sale in my grocery store, how about yours? :)

Strawberry Shortcake

Ingredients:

3 pints fresh strawberries
1/2 cup white sugar
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
2 tablespoons white sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup shortening
1 egg
2/3 cup milk
2 cups whipped heavy cream

Directions:

1) Slice the strawberries and toss them with 1/2 cup of white sugar. Set aside.

2) Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Grease and flour one 8 inch round cake pan.
In a medium bowl combine the flour, baking powder, 2 tablespoons white sugar and the salt. With a pastry blender cut in the shortening until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Make a well in the center and add the beaten egg and milk. Stir until just combined.

3) Spread the batter into the prepared pan. Bake at 425 degrees F (220 degrees C) for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool partially in pan on wire rack.

4) Slice partially cooled cake in half, making two layers. Place half of the strawberries on one layer and top with the other layer. Top with remaining strawberries and cover with the whipped cream.

Now, I look forward to seeing your Favorite Ingredients Friday recipe! I won't be able to visit your recipes right away but fear not, I will stop by to visit your recipe as soon as I can!

Don't forget to link your specific recipe post link on Mr. Linky so I can see what's cooking at your house!

Oh, and be sure to put the title of your recipe in parenthesis! It makes it so much quicker for me to go back and search for recipes as I build my weekly menu.

I made some last night with locally grown berries - YUMMY. Isn't it just the best thing to eat in the sumer?

This is one of my favorite desserts. I just might have to make this today. I just bought strawberries yesterday.
Thanks for the reminder of this awesome dessert.

Yes, strawberries are in season here too -- wonderful! Just realized, though, I forgot to add the title of my recipe. I'm sorry... It's Strawberry Lovers' Pie.

Thanks for hosting!

That strawberry shortcake sounds delicious. I'm not much of a baker, but this recipe is tempting me to give it try
