Hull and slice four cups strawberries; combine with 1/4 cup sugar, and

mixture in a lightly greased 8" square baking pan. Bake at 450 for 15
minutes or until golden brown. Cool 5 minutes; turn out onto a wire rack.

Cut shortcake into 6 pieces; slice each piece crosswise in half. Place
bottom half of shortcake, cut side up, on an individual serving plate; top
with a dollop of whipped cream and 2-1/2 tablespoons of strawberry mixture.
Add second layer of shortcake; cut side down; top with a dollop of whipped
cream and 2-1/2 tablespoons of strawberry mixture. Garnish with an
additional dollop of whipped cream. Add a whole strawberry for garnish.
Repeat for each shortcake.
