How to Make Strawberry Shortcake
Preheat the oven to 350˚ F. In a medium-size bowl, cream together the sugar and shortening. Add the egg and the vanilla and beat well. In a separate bowl, combine all the dry ingredients, and add alternately, with the milk, to the creamed mixture. Spread in a greased 9-inch square baking pan. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
Cut into nine servings. Split each serving horizontally, and fill with whipped cream and strawberries. Replace the top of the cake; garnish with more berries and a dollop of whipped cream. Serve immediately. Serves 9.
