This is the recipe the pastor's wife,Brooke gave me,she said it's one of their familiy's favorites.
She said she likes to season the strawberries with sugar and let them set so they become juicy,pour a teaspoon of the juice over the dollop of whipped cream on top.
Sounds good to me! My Grandmother used to make strawberry shortcake with sweetened biscuits like this,my Mother always made cake,I love it both ways!
