Southern-Style Strawberry Shortcake

Southern Style Strawberry Shortcake

Before I married the Hubby, I had only had Strawberry Shortcake with the little golden cake discs manufactured by Hostess.  On occasion, I would bake up a Yellow Cake Mix to be the cake in a Strawberry Shortcake.

I remember the look on my face when we went to his mother’s for Sunday dinner during strawberry season and she had pie crust as the cake in Strawberry Shortcake.  I kept thinking, “where is the cake?”  “I have never heard of Strawberry Short-pie Crust, but I tried it and surprisingly like it very much.  So in honor of my mother-in-law, I created this Southern-Style Strawberry Shortcake post.
