Yummy Strawberry Shortcake

I was going through some of my old books from my childhood and found this really sweet book called, Cook-A-Doodle-Doo! by: Janet Stevens and Susans Stevens Crummel. I saw a strawberry shortcake recipe in the back and decided to give it a try! The recipe is as follows:
Great-Granny's Magnificent Strawberry Shortcake
2 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter
1 egg beaten
2/3 cup milk
3-4 cups strawberries sliced
1 cup whipping cream, whipped
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Sift flour, then sift together dry ingredients. Cut in butter until mixutre resembles coarse crumbs. Add egg and milk, stirring by hand just enough to moisten. Spread dough in greased 8 x 1/2-inch round pan; cool on rack 5 minutes. Split into two layers; lift top off carefully. Alternate layers of cake, whipped cream, and strawberries, ending with strawberries on top.
