Reviews for Old-Fashioned Strawberry Shortcake
"I was looking for a shortcake recipe like the one my grandmother used to make when I was a little girl. This one looked similar so I tried it. I found it extremely flaky so that it fell apart almost immediately after removing it from the pan. It also lacked any flavor, instead tasting flour-y, even after I added vanilla to the recipe. I will be looking for another recipe somewhere else."
