OLD-FASHIONED SHORTCAKE BISCUITS 
2 1/2 c. sifted all purpose flour
1/2 c. (1 stick) chilled unsalted butter, diced
1/2 c. sugar
2 tbsp. Citrus Sugar
1 tbsp. + 1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. cream of tartar

Steel Knife; Place first 7 ingredients in work bowl. Process until mixture resembles coarse meal. Remove cover and pour cream evenly over mixture. Using on/off turns, process just until dough forms moist clumps.

Transfer biscuits to prepared cookie sheet, spacing 3" apart. Bake until light brown, about 18 minutes (biscuits will spread). Transfer to rack. Cool to just warm, about 15 minutes. (Shortcakes can be prepared 3 hours ahead. To re-warm in microwave, place 3 biscuits on large paper plate. Cook uncovered on Medium about 1 minute. Repeat with remaining biscuits.)
