How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 425°.

  2. Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour and next 4 ingredients in a large bowl; cut in butter with a pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add milk and juice; stir with a fork just until moist.

  3. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; knead 7 times. Pat dough to a 3/4-inch thickness; cut with a 1 3/4-inch biscuit cutter. Place biscuits on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray; coat tops of biscuits with cooking spray.

  4. Bake at 425° for 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on pan 5 minutes. Spread about 2 teaspoons glaze over each biscuit. Serve warm.

  5. NOTE: Nutritional analysis totals include Orange Glaze.
