Memories in a Bowl

July 10, 2011

For many years, summer wasn't complete without my "other" mom's famous strawberry shortcake.  The delicious cake warm from the oven and served with fresh strawberries and half & half.  Each bite of pure sweetness.
This past week, I was missing her and decided it was time to make her delicious shortcake.  As we enjoyed each yummy bite, I remembered all the times spent at my dad's house, gathering as family and enjoying this treat that my "other" mom made. 

Grams' Shortcake
2 1/3 Cup Bisquick
1 Cup Sugar
1 Cup Milk
Mix well.  Should be the consitency of cake dough.
Bake at 425 degrees for 15-20 minutes.

Precious memories in a bowl. 

Miss you mom!

Yummo! One of my best friends made small cakes from a recipe like this for my 40th birthday. I prepared a sit down dinner for 20 people with the help of a few friends. Strawberry shortcake for dessert is always a winner! I made blackberry apple crisp yesterday and it was delicious with vanilla ice cream. Hope you have a great new week. Tammy
