The sun is shining and strawberries are here!  How many ways can we enjoy them?

1 lb fresh strawberries
2 cups flour
4 Tbl sugar, divided
3 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/3 cup cold butter
3/4 cup milk
sweetened whipped cream

Slice strawberries, sprinkle with 2 Tbl sugar (more if desired), refrigerate.  Preheat oven to 450°.  Mix flour, 2 Tbl sugar, baking powder, and salt.  Cut in butter.  Stir in milk just until mixed.  Turn out onto floured surface, knead a couple times.  Roll to 1/2″ thickness, cut with 3″ cutter.  Place on ungreased baking pan, sprinkle sugar on top of each shortcake.  Bake until golden 10-12 minutes.  Split in half, fill with whipped cream and chilled sweetened strawberries.
