Strawberry Shortcake

I had bought some strawberries from the store this week and wanted to make a Strawberry Shortcake.  This recipe is from Pillsbury Complete Cookbook, and it's very good not to mention super simple!

2.  Bake at 375 for 25-30 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.  Cool 10 minutes.

3.  Meanwhile, in medium bowl, combine strawberries and 1/2 cup sugar; mix well.  Refridgerate 30 minutes or until serving time.

5.  Invert shortcake onto serving platter.  If desired, split shortcake into 2 layers.  Serve shortcake topped with strawberries and whipped cream.  Store in refridgerator.
