Strawberry Shortcakes


1 qt strawberries, sliced
1 c. sugar
1/3 c. shortening
2 c. flour
2 Tbs. sugar
3 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
3/4 c. milk
butter, softened


Mix strawberries and 1 cup sugar; let stand 1 hour.

Heat oven to 450. Cut shortening into flour, 2 Tbs. sugar, the baking powder and salt until mixture resembles fine crumbs. Stir in milk just until blended. Gently smooth dough into a ball on lightly floured cloth-covered board. Knead 20 to 25 times. Roll to 1/2" thickness; cut with floured 3" cutter. Place about 1" apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake until golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes. Split crosswise while hot. Spread with butter; fill and top with cream and strawberries.
