Sunday Supper/Strawberry Shortcake
Yes, you read the title right. We had just strawberry shortcake for supper tonight. It was so filling we couldn't finish and shared a bit with Ben and Sadie. It is a Gladys Taber recipe.
Clean and stem the berries, and mash slightly until the juice runs ruby red and sweet. Add a little sugar to taste, and warm on the stovetop.
2 cups flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 Tablespoons sugar
1/3 cup butter
3/4 cup milk
Sift dry ingredients, work butter in with fingertips, add milk gradually.
Roll out lightly to fit a pie tin and bake in 450º F oven about twelve minutes.
Then split, butter, drench underhalf with berries and pour the rest over the top half, add a lot of heavy whipped cream.
Serve warm for supper.
I mixed in the butter with two knives.
I greased the pie pan with cooking spray.
I put heavy cream with a bit of honey added into the blender for under a minute to make whipped cream.
