This is great! I made it exactly as written, except for the fact I had to cook it a few extra minutes. A toothpick still didn't come out cleanly, but I was afraid I'd burn it if I cooked it too long. Anyway, it is AMAZING. It is so much better than plain shortcake. I am definitely making this one again! Made for "Please Review My Recipe"
