Strawberry Shortcake Recipe

May 1, 2010

Strawberry season is here!  Our family loves to pick strawberries at a local farm.  Last year we picked about 40 lbs. of strawberries for frozen jam and shortcake.  Here is our recipe for strawberry shortcake (more like a shortbread) with real whipped cream.
