It is strawberry shortcake season and as the mother of a boy who loves his strawberries and all sweets. I fooled around with this for a while and it is so easy to alter and make different for all things!

3 eggs separated ( room temp)
1 tsp cream of tarter
3 drops almond extract
capful vanilla extract
1/2 cap lemon extract
pinch salt
1 tsp baking powder
3/4 cup cornstarch
1/2 cup sugar

Sift the cornstarch, baking powder, and sugar into med bowl. mix the egg whites with cream of tarter in a glass or metal bowl into meringue. As they whip up slowly add extracts. Once stiff but still wet, add the yolks slowly, keeping speed on high. Once well mixed, SLOWLY add in the dry. Once well mixed stop and pour into well greased cake pans. Cook in 350 oven for 15 min. Don't over cook! Cool for a few minutes then cool on metal rack.

Awesome for all kinds of things. I cut it up and layered it in a glass with berries, and icing and AH Laska chocolate sauce.
