      Strawberry Shortcake Squares

      4 cups Strawberries, hulled and sliced
      1/4 cup Sugar

      2 cups Flour
      1/4 cup Sugar
      1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
      1/4 teaspoon Salt
      1/2 cup Butter
      2/3 cup Milk
      1 Egg

      2 cups Sweetened Whipped Cream
      6 whole Strawberries

      Combine sliced strawberries and 1/4 cup sugar in a bowl and set aside in the refrigerator.

      Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a mixing bowl, add butter and mix it with your hand or use a pastry blender if you have one, until it looks like coarse meal. In a small bowl, combine milk and egg, stir well and add it to the flour mixture, stir just until moistened. Pour batter into a lightly greased 8 inch square baking pan.

      Spread it evenly in the pan. Bake at 450 degrees F for 15 minutes or until cake is a golden brown. Cool 5 minutes and turn out onto a wire rack.

      Cut Shortcake into 6 pieces; slice each piece crosswise in half. Place bottom half of shortcake, cut side up, on an individual serving plate; top with a dollop of whipped cream and 2 1/2 tablespoons of strawberry mixture. Add second layer cut side down, top with a dollop of whipped cream and 2 1/2 tablespoons of the strawberry mixture.

      Garnish with an additional dollop of whipped cream and a whole strawberry. Repeat for each of the remaining five shortcake squares.

      Enjoy! Thanks; Virginia

      Yesterday DH made homemade shortcakes & we had bought 3 lbs of strawberries ($1.00 a lb.), so we had strawberry shortcake for lunch. Yummy! He put the rest of the strawberries in the freezer.

      Today he bought 6 more lbs & is getting them ready for the freezer as I type. We use only Splenda for anything, we use sugar free Kool whip.
