      This had a nice flavor and looked lovely but we found the texture to be a bit dense and the biscuit chewy. I was careful not to overwork the dough so was surprised by the chewiness, Most baking powder biscuits use around 1/3 cup butter or shortening to 2 cups of flour so I wonder if a little more fat would help improve the texture.

      Yummylicious!!! So fast and easy to make. The recipe can easily be halved. I used Splenda Blend in place of the sugar. I also used a little more orange peel and threw in a dash of orange extract. The biscuits rose beautifully and were delicious. A little butter and I was in biscuit heaven. As easy as these are to whip up, I will be making them on a regular basis. Thanks, loof...this one is going straight into the keeper file. Made for December 2012 Aus/NZ Swap.
