Homemade Shortcake Recipe
- 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 4 teaspoons baking powder
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 3/4 cup milk
- Strawberry slices
- Cool whip or whip cream
Blend salt, flour, baking powder and sugar together. Add milk in slowly and combine until moistened. On a greased cookie sheet drop spoonfuls of dough. An easier alternative is to shape the dough into an even rectangle and cut it into squares.
Bake at 450 degrees for 10-12 minutes until golden brown. Allow to cool. Slice through the middle of each shortcake. Top bottom half with sliced strawberries and add whip cream. Place top half of shortcake on the cool whip and strawberries.
You can make the shortcakes as big as you'd like just allow enough time for cooking depending on their size.
