  • Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead 1 to 2 times. Pat to a 1/2-inch thickness; cut with a 1 1/2-inch round cutter, and place on lightly greased baking sheets.

  • Bake at 450° for 7 to 9 minutes or until lightly browned.

  • Stir together powdered sugar, orange juice, and grated orange rind. Drizzle evenly over warm biscuits.

  • Note: For testing purposes only, we used Bisquick all-purpose baking mix.

  • To make ahead: Freeze unbaked biscuits on a lightly greased baking sheet 30 minutes or until frozen. Store in a zip-top plastic freezer bag up to 3 months. Bake as directed for 8 to 10 minutes.
