Slice wash, hulled strawberries into a large bowl.  Add about 1/2 cup sugar or enough to your taste preference.  Mash the berries well to make them juicy.

When the shortcakes have been removed from the oven and cooled, slice in half.  Place one half of the shortcake in a bowl, cover with berries, place shortcake top on next, cover with more berries and top with whip cream.

Happy Spring!!
