Strawberry shortcake

Find local strawberries whenever possible, but this recipe works with those grown out of the area;

Either bake an angel food cake, your favorite shortcake recipe, or those little dessert cups will work well;

Take your strawberries, remove the stems.  The berries may already be sweet enough for you, but if not, add a little sugar and stir it in with the berries;

Put strawberries in the dessert cups or on top of the shortcake and top with either store bought whipped cream, or make your own;

Then sit back and enjoy.  And remember, there will be plenty of local strawberries for sale this weekend at the North Carolina Strawberry Festival in Chadbourn!
