9. Remove from heat and let cool.

Use oven mitts to remove the baking sheet from the oven and place it on a cooling rack. Allow the shortcakes to cool for at least 10 minutes before attempting to remove them from the baking sheet.

Once cooled, use a spatula to carefully lift the shortcakes off the baking sheet and onto a plate or cutting board.

10. To assemble shortcakes, split each biscuit in half.
