Old Fashioned Strawberry Shortcake

Sam Womack


I have looked at many so called "original" and "Old Fashioned" recipes on line. Not a one of them addressed the shortcake I had as a kid that my mama made, my grannies made, and etc the women in the community.
By the way this was southern in my book.

20 Min


1-2 qt
1-2 large
pie crusts
sugar to taste

Directions Step-By-Step

Make about the equivalet of 2 pie crusts dough. Roll out flat and cut in strips. Place on cookie sheet and bake until golden. The amount of crust is dependent on how large you want your dessert.
Hint: rather than use a knife to cut into strips, use a pizza cutter, No torn strips.
Meanwhile, add sugar [or sweetner] to strawberries and mash with a potato masher.
When crust is done and cool, starting, at the bottom of a 9X13 or other dish, with crust, strawberries, then crust, alternating to the top.
If desired, add a dollop of whipped cream when served.
