day 21: a recipe

I have posted a few recipes on here before but mostly just main courses. So I think I'll post something for the summer and something I made the other day.

Strawberry Shortcake! (taken from All Recipes but altered a bit)


  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 cup butter
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 3 cups sliced fresh strawberries
  • 3 tablespoons white sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, mix flour, 1/4 cup sugar, baking powder and cream of tartar. Cut in butter with pastry blender or two knives. Stir in cream and egg. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead 2 minutes. Press into a half-inch thick sheet. Cut into squares or shaped into balls. Place on baking sheets.
  3. Bake in preheated oven 20 minutes, or until golden. Sprinkle 3 tablespoons sugar over sliced berries.
  4. Let shortcakes cool before splitting and filling with sugared berries.

Sorry I couldn't wait to dive in and didn't take a picture. I think I will have some tonight after dinner. yum.
