    Shortcake is an American thing. Goes way back. Similar to a scone, but different. For one thing if carefully cut, like a good biscuit, its sides are not sealed so it rises evenly all around. Some make them in layers, stacking two biscuits with a smear of butter between, so that they separate perfectly. Scrumptuous dessert. Thanks for the recipe. Been eating tons of peaches, so I m ripe for a twist on things. Hope the kitchen you ve been waiting for is now ready, and was worth the wait. Any chance we ll see some pics of it?
