Seasonal Recipe: Strawberries

My fondest memories of childhood include me helping my grandma pick fresh strawberries out of her enormous strawberry patch located right outside her back door. Just the smell of sweet strawberries takes me back to her kitchen. I get teary eyed just thinking about those precious memories. So as you can imagine they are hands down my favorite fruit. It's hard to mess them up and they so great fresh with nothing done to them.

However, sometimes you need to jazz them up for the kids or company. Here is one of my family's favorite strawberry recipes.

Strawberry Shortcake Muffins

1 c. sugar
4 Tbsp. oleo
1 egg
2 c. budget mix (click here for my recipe)
1 c. milk
1 tsp. vanilla
cool whip

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Grease one muffin tin. Cream sugar and shortening. Add egg, budget mix, and then milk mixing in between. Add vanilla. Fill 12 muffin slots in tin. Bake for 10 minutes, then serve with strawberries and cool whip.

I find my version of shortcakes to be easy and fast because of using the budget mix and the muffin tins. No rolling and cutting with this version.
