Measure Ingredient
2 cups Flour; sifted
1 tablespoon Baking powder
1 teaspoon Salt
½ cup Shortening
⅔ cup Milk
⅔ cup Strawberries; fresh, sliced

Sift flour with baking powder and salt. Cut in shortening with a pastry blender until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Add milk, straberries and pecans; stirring until a soft dough is formed.
