READY IN: 22mins
Recipe by KitchenCraftsnMore

These are delicious! I had written them down years ago and only tried them for the first time tonight. Light, deliciously 'cakey' and special for scrumptious summer shortcake. I hope you like it as much as I did!

I would have given this recipe a higher rating, but it is missing the oven temperature. Based on others' comments, I baked mine at 325 for 12 minutes, and they turned out nicely. I might add another tablespoon of sugar to make them a touch sweeter. I also might use butter-flavored crisco next time for a bit more flavor.
