Orange-Cranberry Biscuits

Orange-Cranberry Biscuits

I love waking my family up to warm biscuits in the morning. These are great because they mix the tartness of cranberries and orange with the goodness of a biscuit. I love the orange icing that is drizzled on top. Give these a try!

    This looks like a delicious recipe, but there is no mention of the cranberries in the ingredients or instructions. How much is used, and are they dried cranberries?
