H* 4979 N. lyd»ll Ave, • Milwaukee 17^ Wisconsin JTRAWBERRIES score this time of year as we have ourselves a ball making* flamboyant desserts. Strawberry Shortcake leads off, of course: There are those who take great pride in making good .old 1 fashioned shortcake, mixing their shortcake from scratch, while others prefer the quicker method whereby they whip up a recipe in no time flat, using biscuit mix, sugar and cream. ". Some make Upside Down Shortcake in which the top layer is placed upside down so that the flavor of the sweet strawberry juice soaks right in the shortcake. If you're looking for a shortcake that's out of the ordinary, you might .try your hand at Strawberry Pinwheel Shortcake. Make your biscuit dough adding a bit of sugar, pat out dough into a 9-inch square, then spread with melted butter. Next mix together one-half cup sugar and some grated orange rind and sprinkle on the dough"; roll up as for a jelly roll; cut into six slices, arrange the biscuits cut side up around the edge of. a glass pie plate and bake: When the biscuits are cool, heap fresh strawberries in the center of the pie plate for serving. ^But shortcakes are only a part of the strawberry story — there's a Strawberry Cream Roll which you bake like a jelly roll, fill with whipped, cream and berries, then roll up and chill before cutting and serving . . Again, you can whisk your berries into a party 'pink Strawberry Butter : Torte, three tiers high with a fluffy top of whipped cream, chopped nuts and > berries . ', . And for a taste treat, there's Strawberry Cream Freeze — we'll 'wager no one will guess that you achieved its bewitching flavor through the-use of sour-cream! Of course when it comes to strawberry pies, nothing, but NOTHING can surpass a Strawberry Chiffpn Pie with "its luscious goodness! Or for sheer beauty, 'what is more enticing than a Fresh Strawberry Pie with its ruby glaze peeping out, 'neath a circlet of whipped cream? And even in pies ther.e's,something. new: a pie known as a Short Pie. The crust is made" in a jiffy with biscuit mix, butter and a little^boiling water, but the real fun comes in the filling, for you can turn it into a Sundae Short Pie by folding fresh or frozen berries into softened ice cream, piling this quickly into the baked crust, forming decorative swirls. Proof anew of just a few. of the ways in which strawberries score not only' now, but throughout the year! FRUIT SHORTCAKE 2 cups biscuit mix 2 tbsp. sugar 3 A cup cream or •V4 cup milk plus V* cup melted butter Heat oven to 450°. Mix all ingredients well with fork.
