This strawberry shortcake recipe is from Ken’s Grandma Shirley. It’s the perfect summertime treat when strawberries are in season. It’s also easy to make.

First, wash your strawberries.

Then I like to mix in a little honey and poppy seeds in mine. This is optional, and not in Grandma Shirley’s original recipe.
