So my daughter boots me out of the kitchen the other night so she can bake. That's my cue to take off and let her do her magic. She whipped up these delicious orange thingies that really impressed me! They were gone by the next morning. Because she's very kind-hearted, Sam is willing to share her recipe with all of you. Even if she isn't willing to share kitchen space.

Samantha's Orange Biscuits

1/2 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tbsp. unsalted butter
1 tsp. grated orange peel

2 cups white flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
6 tbsp. unsalted butter
7/8 cup skim milk

2 tbsp. brown sugar
1/2 tsp. cinnamon

Syrup: Mix all 5 ingredients into small saucepan. Heat and stir until butter is melted. Pour into greased 9" x 9" pan. (Samantha used a circular pie pan for this).

Biscuits: Measure first three ingredients into large bowl. Cut in butter until crumbly. Make a well in the middle. Pour milk into well. Stir until moistened and mixture forms a ball of dough.

Turn out onto lightly floured surface. Knead 6 times. Roll out into rectangle.

Combine brown sugar and cinnamon in small cup. Sprinkle over dough. Roll up, jelly roll style, beginning at long end. Cut into 1" thick slices. With cut side up, place on top of syrup mixture in pan.

Bake at 425 degrees for 25 minutes or until lightly browned.
