- 2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
- 1/3 cup finely chopped pecans

Roll up, jellyroll fashion; pinch seams and ends to seal. Cut roll into 12 (1-inch) slices. Place slices, 1 1/2 inches apart, on a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake at 425º for 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove pinwheels from oven, and cool on wire racks.
- Beat whipping cream at medium speed with an electric mixer until foamy; gradually add powdered sugar, beating until soft peaks form.
- Place 1 pinwheel on each serving plate; spoon strawberry mixture over pinwheels. Dollop shortcakes with whipped cream.
