Oatmeal Shortcake

Go grab the first pound of fresh strawberries you find (for a relatively good price) and make this easy and delicious taste of Spring!
It just may cure the winter blues, for the time being.
And I have those, something fierce.

Oatmeal Shortcake

2 cup quick oats
2 cup flour
6 TBS sugar
4 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 stick + 1 TBS butter
1 1/3 cup milk

Combine dry ingredients. Add butter with pastry blender ( or use 2 knives or forks) to make mixture crumbly. Blend in milk gently. Spread in greased cake pan and lightly sprinkle a little more sugar over top.

Bake on 400 for 15-20 minutes or until lightly golden.

Serve with fresh berries and sweetened whipped cream.
