Strawberry Shortcake

Flour, 1 qt.;

Eggs, 4;

Cream or melted butter, 1 teacupful;

Milk;

Salt, 1 teaspoonful;

Strawberries;

White sugar.

Mix a quart of flour with four beaten eggs, a teacupful of cream or melted butter, and a teaspoonful of salt; add enough milk to roll it out. Roll it out thin; line a shallow baking pan with part of it, put in a thick layer of nice, ripe strawberries, and sprinkle in sufficient white sugar to sweeten them; cover them with a thin layer of the crust; then add another layer of strawberries and sugar, and cover the whole with another layer of the crust. Bake in a quick oven about twenty-five minutes.
