Haven't made these yet. I question only 7 strawberries? Doesn't seem like many strawberries. Is this a misprint? Thought I better clarify before I try making them and end up disappointed.

These were quite good! They'd be perfect for a baby shower with their pretty pink color. I made the recipe as written. Next time I think I may substitute butter for the shortening...
