    Derf's Note:

    This is the way my Mom used to make Strawberry shortcake, and I still do. Historically, strawberry shortcake was served when the wild strawberries ripened in the meadows. The shortcake was a rich biscuit dough baked in a round cake pan. This recipe was taken from Mrs. George Treadway's handwritten recipe book, dated 1898 and is now part of the historic collection in the museum at High River, Alberta.

      Have been trying different shortcake recipes to find one like Mom used to make. Sister copied her recipes and definitely left something out on the shortcake recipe. This shortcake tastes just like what Mom used to make ~ just slightly sweet, dense and moist. It's the perfect compliment to the beautiful fresh strawberries that we're enjoying at this time of year!!

      Derf, This was the easiest and tastiest shortcake we have ever had. It was simple to make and not time consuming at all. In fact, I've made it 4 times this month already. Thanks for sharing.
