Citrus Cream Biscuits

Usually, biscuits tend to be a bit on the dry side, especially when they’re vegan, but these are lovely and tender, with the sweet-tartness of the lemon and orange peel shining through.  They’re a perfect base for strawberry shortcake stacks in the summertime.

cups flour
teaspoons baking powder
