Pat-in-the-Pan Strawberry Shortcake
The only recipe I ever use for shortcake. I have such fond memories of home-made strawberry cake as a child. We often added cream or milk instead of whipped cream to our shortcake. My favorite aunt, Aunt Nellie, always took us strawberry picking and then we would have that favorite shortcake. Her shortcake, homemade, tasted just like this Bisquick one. She is 85 years old now with Parkinson''s disease in a nursing home. I am baking one this aft. and as a surprise, having it served to her this evening. I picked strawberries with Rachel, my 8 year-old grand-daughter yesterday. I hope it is a fond memory for her and that she also makes this recipe for her family someday with the beautiful story behind it.
