Combine the strawberries and the sugar in a large bowl. Stir well to coat the berries. Set aside. By the time that the shortcake is done you will have a wonderful strawberry syrup!

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

Combine the self-rising flour and the sugar. Cut in the butter until the mixture resembles course crumbs. Mix together the egg and half and half. Add to the flour mixture and mix until it forms a stiff dough.
