Shortcake

Recipe by Mary Scheffert

I got this recipe from the wife of a co-worker. It's a very simple cake, buttery & not too sweet -- perfect with seasonal fruit & whipped topping or ice cream.

Great texture, but really salty. I would probably halve the salt. Other than that it was quite nice, though.
