Strawberry Shortcake

The last of the strawberries and the first of the raspberries. That little recipe for shortcake is so easy I was able to whip up the dough and get it in the oven while I was making the corned beef dinner. Those two muffins are 7 inch shortcakes on a cookie sheet. It really is time I invested in a couple of cake pans.

Anyway I sliced them in half horizontally and stacked them up.  I mixed berries and whipped cream for the filling and used pure whipped cream on top.  The cake was difficult to cut at first but after it had been in the fridge for a while it firmed up nicely.  Everyone was thrilled with the dessert seemingly pulled out of thin air.
