Gold Medal Flour

Ingredients

  • 1
    quart strawberries, sliced
  • 1/2
    cup sugar
  • 1/3
    cup shortening
  • 2
    cups Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
  • 2
    tablespoons sugar
  • 3
    teaspoons baking powder
  • 1
    teaspoon salt
  • 3/4
    cup milk
  • Butter or margarine, softened
  • Cream or sweetened whipped cream

Steps

  • 1
    Sprinkle strawberries with 1/2 cup sugar; let stand 1 hour.
  • 2
    Heat oven to 450°F. Grease bottom and side of round pan, 8x1 1/2 inches.
  • 3
    Cut shortening into flour, 2 tablespoons sugar, the baking powder and salt in medium bowl, using pastry blender or crisscrossing 2 knives, until mixture looks like fine crumbs. Stir in milk just until blended. Pat dough in pan.
  • 4
    Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown.
  • 5
    Split layer horizontally in half while hot. Spread with butter; fill and top with strawberries. Serve warm with cream.

  • Although available year-round, fresh strawberries are at their best from April to June. Go ahead and use other in-season fresh fruit when your grocery store’s strawberries look less than spectacular.
  • No need to limit yourself to strawberries! Anything from apricots to watermelon works well, too.
