For shortcake:
  • In a large bowl, stir together biscuit mix and nutmeg. Use a pastry blender to cut butter into flour mixture until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Make a well in the center of the mixture. Add half-and-half all at once. Using a fork, stir just until moistened. Drop dough into 6 mounds on an ungreased baking sheet; flatten each mound with the back of a spoon until about 3/4-inch thick. Lightly sprinkle each mound with additional sugar.
