Strawberry Shortcake

2 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp baking powder
2 tbsp sugar
4 tbsp cold butter
3/4 cup milk
1 cup whipped topping
1 cup sour cream
2 tbsp golden brown sugar
3 cups sliced strawberries

Preheat oven to 425°. Combine the first 5 ingredients together in medium bowl. Mix well. Add butter and combine until mixture looks like bits the size of large peas. Add milk, mixing in with fork. Use your hands to make dough ball. The dough should remain soft. Place dough on floured surface and gently press into a flat circle, about 7-8inches around. Use a sharp knife and cut into 8 wedges. Place the wedges onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 10 minutes or until nicely golden brown. Cool on a rack.

Beat golden sugar into the sour cream. Beat whipping cream until stiff and then combine with sour cream mixture. Slice open the cooled shortcake wedges. Dollop the cream mixture onto the bottoms until you have used about 80 % of the mixture - it will overflow.

Top with lots of sliced strawberries. Reserve a few berries for decorating the tops. Place the shortcake tops on each wedge. Place a small dollop and strawberry on top of each. Recipe serves 8.
