I have never seen orange yogurt in my area so I used plain yogurt and replaced the milk with orange juice. Since I made them as a parting gift for friends who left today I used 1/2 a cup sugar. This was a great choice as it allowed me to use some mincemeat that has been lingering in the pantry since Christmas. They are really lovely when baked and the baking aroma is superb. The fact that they are easy peasy doesn't hurt any either. They made a lovely gift packaged with a pretty jar of Recipe#201503. Oh yes, I mixed a tsp of rum into the marmalade just because, lol.
