Strawberry Shortcake

Fresh Strawberries.....time for shortcake!  I have used a number of different recipes for shortcake over the years...but have found that Eleanor's famous biscuit recipe adapts well and is one of our favorites. 
Baking Powder Biscuit Shortcake:
2 C flour
1 T baking powder
1/2 t salt
1/4 c sugar
6 T butter
about 3/4 c milk
Preheat oven to 45o degrees. 
Mix together the dry ingredients.  Using a pastry blender mix in butter until it resembles coarse crumbs.  Stir in enough milk until it makes a soft dough.  Knead dough on a lightly floured surface.  Cut with a glass for rounds shape and place on silpat.
Bake 8-10 minutes, until browned.
