A friend asked for a good shortcake recipe today, and I was glad to share our family favorite. I never think about serving strawberry shortcake until summer, but even with frozen strawberries this can make a good treat.

OVEN: 450 degrees

2 cups flour
1/4 cup sugar
3 teaspoons baking powder
Dash nutmeg

Combine these ingredients and cut in 1/2 cup butter. Add 1 egg and 1/3 cup milk. Mix well with fork.

Turn out dough onto floured board. Knead gently. Pat evenly into greased 8" round cake pan. Bake 15-20 minutes. Let stand in pan on rack 5 minutes. Turn out to cool on rack.

Split cake and fill with sweetened strawberries. Top with fresh whipped cream.
