Nutritional Facts

1 serving (1 each) equals 216 calories, 9 g fat (2 g saturated fat), 19 mg cholesterol, 328 mg sodium, 30 g carbohydrate, 3 g fiber, 4 g protein.

Directions

  1. Combine the strawberries and sugar; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, cut shortening into flour until crumbly. In a small bowl, beat egg; add buttermilk. Stir into flour mixture just until moistened. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead three to four times. Roll out to 1/2-in. thickness; cut with a 3-in. round biscuit cutter. Place on a lightly greased baking sheet.
  3. Bake at 400° for 15-18 minutes or until lightly browned; cool slightly.
  4. Split biscuits lengthwise; place the bottom halves on serving plates. Top with about 1/3 cup strawberries and whipped cream. Replace biscuit tops; spoon about 1/3 cup strawberries and more whipped cream on top. Serve immediately. Yield: 10-12 servings.
Editor's Note: As a substitute for each cup of self-rising flour, place 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a measuring cup. Add all-purpose flour to measure 1 cup.
