Directions:
Sift flour, baking powder, salt and sugar into a mixing bowl. Add 2 full rolling T. of butter. With tips of fingers, mix into consistency of corn meal. Using the same flour-measuring cup, place therein one egg; whip until light with a fork, and finish filling the cup with milk. Pour liquid into flour mixture and stir well for two minutes. Place into deep pie plates or small baking pan and bake in moderate oven 20-25 minutes.

Baking should be times so as to permit the serving of the short cake warm from the oven. Have ready at serving table, three pints of partly crushed ripe berries sweetened to taste. Cut short cake to desired size and shape at table, slicing the individual portion horizontally to permit placing the berries in generous portions between the slices and on top. Whipped cream may be added if desired.
