    Recipe Introduction

    This is the best recipe for shortcake - they're good split and toasted the next morning also!

    List of Ingredients

    3 cups flour
    1 1/3 tablespoons baking powder
    1/2 cup sugar
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 stick unsalted butter
    1 egg -- beaten
    3/4 cup milk - use enough to make 1 cup when mixed
    with egg
    More sugar


    Mix the dry ingredients. Cut in the butter. Add the liquid to make a soft dough. Form into 6 (humongous) or 8 (somewhat more reasonable sized) shortcakes. Sprinkle tops heavily with sugar. Bake on a greased cookie sheet in 400 -425 oven for 15-17 minutes, until tops are light golden.
