Old Fashioned Strawberry Shortcake
It's Strawberry Season!
When I was growing up we had a "huge" strawberry patch. I loved when the strawberries were ripe and my mom would make this shortcake recipe and we would have strawberry shortcake. The recipe is actually my grandmother's which makes it all the more special! I hope you enjoy it!

- 4 -1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 -1/2 tablespoon sugar
- 1/2 cup butter - melted
- 1 egg - beaten

Strawberries for Your Shortcake
- Take stems and leaves off strawberries. Wash gently. Cut strawberries in half. Place into bowl. Sprinkle sugar over strawberries. Gently "mash" strawberries with fork or potato masher. Let sit 30 minutes for strawberry juices to mesh with sugar. Drizzle over shortcake & enjoy!
