For the shortcrust pastry :
Sieve the flour and salt together. Cut the margarine with a knife.

When the mixture becomes light and creamy, put the eggs, one at a time, beating each time thoroughly.

Spread one-third of the beaten cream and half the strawberries and put the other cake on top.
Spread a thin layer of the cream over the top of this cake.
