This is the way my Mom used to make Strawberry shortcake, and I still do. Historically, strawberry shortcake was served when the wild strawberries ripened in the meadows. The shortcake was a rich biscuit dough baked in a round cake pan. This recipe was taken from Mrs. George Treadway's handwritten recipe book, dated 1898 and is now part of the historic collection in the museum at High River, Alberta.
