Strawberry Shortcake

Sorry, no pictures.  We inhaled it.  Yes, it's that good.

Here's the recipe:  2 cups flour, 2 tsp. baking powder, 1/4 tsp. baking soda, 3/4 tsp. salt,  and 2 T. sugar, sifted together.  Add 1.5 cups heavy cream, mix and press lightly into an 8 inch ungreased square pan and bake at 400 degrees until golden brown, about 20 minutes.  Top with whipped cream and strawberries mixed with sugar (to make a light syrup).

Fun fact for the day:  if you leave heavy cream in the fridge for a while, say, a week, the fat settles out and makes... butter!  How awesome is that?
