      These are wonderful, Peggy Lynn! The biscuits have great texture, and the topping and filling add just the right amount of flavor and sweetness. They are perfect as is, but if you would like a stronger citrus flavor, it could be interesting to try adding a little fresh orange zest to the dough. I put the muffin tin on a large, parchment-lined baking sheet in case there were any overflows. I only had one small drip, but I would suggest doing so as a precaution, depending on your particular muffin tin (or use foil--I think I just grabbed the parchment paper out of habit, since I always bake with it). I did reduce the oven temp, since I was using a convection oven. Enjoyed very much--thanks for posting!

      Fantastic! These have great biscuit texture and a delicious carmalized glaze. I used brown sugar in the filling and added about a teaspoon of zest to the topping. I baked them for about 17 minutes, and they could have been taken out even earlier - my oven runs hot though, so just keep your eye on them. Be sure and take these out of the pan before the topping sets and don't even think about using anything other than non-stick! Mine weren't quite as pretty as the stunning photo by GaylaJ, but they sure tasted great!

      These are pretty good! I used 1 cup white flour and 1 cup wheat flour. I thought they were pretty easy to make but I would have liked a bit more orange flavor...maybe some grated orange peel?
