A variation of Cinnamon Biscuits. I was in a creative mood one morning and I liked the results!

Everyone loved these. The dough was very easy to roll out. I made the dough exactly as written and they were wonderful. I found that when I cut them some of the cinnamon mixture fell out, so next time I will probably mix the cinnamon with the softened butter and sugar and then spread it on the dough. I ran out of orange zest for the glaze so I added a little orange extract. Thanks for a great recipe.
