(Strawberry) Short Cakes

Renie Johnson’s Short Cake

Mix together:
2 c. flour
1 T. sugar
3 t. baking powder
¼ t. salt
Cut in:
½ c. butter (room temperature)
Mix together:
1 beaten egg
1 c. milk
Pour milk/egg into flour mixture and stir just till moistened. Knead gently a few times then roll out and cut with floured biscuit cutter. Place cakes close together in an 8” round pan so the sides stay soft and don’t brown.
Bake at 400* approx. 15 minutes. Mom always split and buttered the short cakes right from the oven. Serve with berries and cream or half and half.
Serves 6
