This is Holmes' parents' shortcake recipe--I think Mrs Bryan cut the dough into nice round cakes. They are thin, crispy and rich! Two sticks of butter and two cups of flour makes a nice batch. Top with strawberries and cool whip or whipped cream.
1 stick butter per cup of flour
3-6 teaspoons cold water
Mix flour and butter with fork, add water and continue mixing until a smooth dough. Roll out on a floured board, cut out and bake for 15-18 minutes at 400º.
