Gramma's Strawberry Shortcake

Early  in day mix 3 pts Fresh from Florida strawberries-- cut in ½ --with sugar.  This should make a nice juicy mix.    Do not refrigerate.

Later, make the shortcake:
2 cups flour
2 Tbsp sugar
3 tsp Baking Powder
½ tsp salt
 Mix the above together and cut in (with pastry blender) ½ cup butter or margarine

2/3 cup   ½ and ½
1 egg

Add egg mixture  to above and stir just enough to make a soft dough.  Knead slightly ( put flour on your hands and counter)
Pat ½ of dough into a well greased 8”  round cake pan.  Dot with butter.
Pat other ½ of dough on top
Bake 450’ 12 – 15  minutes

Split apart into 2 layers – spoon part of the  strawberries between layers
Spoon  the rest over the top.
Beat whipped cream using frozen bowl and beaters.  Lick beaters.  Top with whipped "crean."

A favorite at Cocoa Beach, especially of those with February Birthdays (Papa 2/2, Jared 2/18, Drew 2/9).
