Strawberry swirls

Yield: 12 Servings

Measure Ingredient
2 cups Sugar
2 cups Water
½ cup Butter or margarine; melted
½ cup Shortening
1½ cup Self-rising flour
½ cup Milk
2 cups Fresh strawberries; finely chopped
\N \N Whipped cream; optional

In a saucepan, combine sugar and water; cook and stir over medium heat until sugar is dissolved. Remove from the heat; allow to cool. Pour butter into a 13x9x2-inch baking dish; set aside. In a bowl, cut shortening into flour until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in milk until moistened.

Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead until smooth, about 8-10 times.

Roll into a 12x8-inch rectangle; sprinkle with the strawberries. Roll up, jelly-roll style, starting with a long side; seal the seam. Cut into 12 slices. Place with cut side down over butter. Carefully pour syrup around rolls. Bake at 350° for 40-45 minutes or until golden brown and edges are bubbly. Serve warm with whipped cream if desired.
