Made just the shortcakes last night, scaling the recipe down to 2. Very good, but a couple of suggestions, of course: First, it was not quite sweet enough. Perhaps you might add a bit more sugar. I also added a big drop of Vanilla 'cause I like it. Most important suggestion though, don't flatten them out too much like I did. Keep at least 1 1/2 thick or make them like drop biscuits. Then you get nice nooks and crannies for the egg white and sugar to collect in. FINALLY, if you are only baking them for two, scale the recipe to three because they weren't quite big enough. Flavor, with a bit more sugar, was great. Next time I'm going to add a bit of cardomom like another reviewer suggested. Sounds interesting.
