Whole Wheat Strawberry Shortcake

Now it's time for dessert!  Strawberry shortcake is always a special treat this time of year when the local strawberries are fresh.  This version features a whole wheat shortcake, a variation on a recipe from my mother-in-law.  The perfect ending to a meal on a warm summer evening.  Go find yourself some fresh local strawberries soon, and make some shortcake!

Whole Wheat Strawberry Shortcake

2 c. white flour
2 c. whole wheat pastry flour
1 c. sugar
8 t. baking powder
1 t. salt
2 sticks of butter, softened
2 egg yolks
1 ¼ c. milk
1-2 t. vanilla

1. Add all ingredients to a mixing bowl and stir well to combine.
2. Portion dough into ¼ cup size pieces and place in an ungreased 9"x13" pan.  You should be able to fit 15 into the pan.
3. Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes.
4. Serve warm with sliced strawberries and whipped cream.

This recipe can easily be halved, and baked in an 8"x8" dish.
