This dessert can easily be made vegan. Substitute soy margarine for the butter, vanilla soy milk for the milk, increase flour in dough to 21/4 cup, and baking soda in dough to 4 tsp.
To prepare dough: combine flour, salt, baking powder, and sugar in bowl. Cut in cold butter until dough has the consistency of coarse sand (or use food processor). Add milk and gently knead just until a ball is formed. Refrigerate.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Combine sugar, flour, and salt for filling. Slowly whisk in water and lemon juice. Stir into strawberries. Place fruit in 9 x 13 inch glass baking dish. Bake for 15 minutes, or until fruit is bubbling. Stir. Tear off 1/4 inch thick, half dollar size pieces of dough; place on top of berries; covering the entire surface. Dot with 2 TB butter, sprinkle with brown sugar. Return to bake 30 minutes or until golden brown.
