Method

Preheat oven to 180°C. Lightly oil a cookie sheet or baking pan.

Shortcake

Pour sifted cake flour, SPLENDA® Granulated, baking powder and baking soda together in a medium sized mixing bowl. Add softened butter and mix until the butter is evenly distributed throughout the flour mixture and is the texture of course cornmeal. Add buttermilk and heavy cream. Stir until just mixed.
