  6. Cranberry-Orange-Glazed Biscuits: Decrease baking mix to 2 cups plus 2 tablespoons. Add 1/2 cup chopped dried cranberries to baking mix. Prepare dough, and bake as directed. Omit 1 tablespoon butter for brushing biscuits after baking. Stir together 6 tablespoons powdered sugar, 1 tablespoon orange juice, and 1/4 teaspoon grated orange rind. Drizzle evenly over warm biscuits.
