    The flavor of these biscuits are awsome. The next time, I would reduce the liquid by 1/4 cup. Thanks for the recipe.

    Delicious! I don't make biscuits or cakes often so I was way outside my comfort zone and not at all sure how these would turn out! I did, therefore, really appreciate the very clear, easy-to-follow instructions. I reduced the salt and omitted the sugar cubes but otherwise made these exactly to the recipe. Quick and easy to make, and I wouldn't change a thing, unless I were perhaps in the mood to add more orange zest! Thanks for sharing this recipe, Baby Kato.

    I made these to go with some fried chicken, and WOW,are these ever good. The orange flavor is absolutely fantastic. The only adjustment I made was I did not use the extra tablespoon of orange juice. I was really surprised how tasty and flavorful they were. I had some peach jelly, so I had some with the jelly. Extra tasty. Great Recipe !
