Strawberry Buttermilk Skillet Shortcake

Ingredients :
10 tablespoons shortening
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 large eggs, room temperature
2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup buttermilk
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 cups sliced fresh strawberries
Whipped cream

Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, cream shortening, butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add 1 egg at a time, beating well after each addition. In another bowl, whisk flour, baking powder and salt; add to creamed mixture alternately with buttermilk, beating well after each addition. Transfer to a 12 in. cast-iron or other ovenproof skillet.
For streusel topping, in a small bowl, mix flour, sugar, cinnamon and allspice; cut in butter until crumbly. Sprinkle over batter. Top with strawberries. Bake until center is puffed and edges are golden brown, 50-60 minutes. Serve warm with whipped cream.
Test Kitchen tips :
Blot the strawberries dry after washing and slicing; use only the firm ones.
Try sprinkling cinnamon and sugar on top for a glistening top during the baking.
Do not overbake; bake just until at toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
