    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.

    Great biscuits with lovely orange flavor! I made it as written and they were delicious. I served them with bacon and scrambled eggs for breakfast. Thanks for sharing. Made for ZWT 8- France.
