Lemon Shortcakes

Cambria: "self, self. " (toddler-ese for I can do it myself)
After we were finished, she went out on the porch to feed her naked baby some snacks. . .
. . .while I cleaned up all of this!
They were amazing!
Lemon Shortcakes
2 cups flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar powder (we have to use it up, right?)
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 cup shortening
2/3 cup milk
zest from one lemon
Crumble shortening with dry ingredients and lemon zest, add milk and stir lightly till the mixture forms a ball. Cut out into 5 circles; place in round pan. Brush with butter and sprinkle with sugar. Bake at 350 for 12 - 15 minutes. Serve with strawberries and ice cream!
