ingredients

3 pints fresh strawberries
2 teaspoons orange juice
4 tablespoons sugar
1 orange, grated rind
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup sour cream
4 tablespoons sugar, optional
1/4 teaspoon sugar or honey
2 cups flour
4 tablespoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup solid shortening
2 cups whipping cream

directions

WHIPPED CREAM: whip cold cream (with sugar) until soft peaks form. Combine sliced berries; sugar or honey; and orange juice. Let stand at room temp. for 1 hr.

Sift all dry ingredients together into a medium bowl. Add orange rind. Add butter and shortening; and work them into flour-mixture thoroughly.

Lightly mix in sour cream with a fork to form a soft dough. Roll dough out onto lightly floured board; 3/4 in thick. Cut into 4 circles; about 4 in wide (use a 2-lb coffee can as a cutter.) Place on ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 400 degrees F about 20 minutes or until golden. While still warm; use fork and split cakes in half. Place each on dessert plate. Top with drained berries and second half of cake. Top with additional berries. ladle some juice on top. Garnish with whipped cream and a strawberry.
