Ingredients

  • 1 can (12 oz.) frozen orange juice concentrate
  • ¼ C water
  • 1 ¼ C Pioneer® Sugar, divided
  • 2 C flour
  • 4 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • ¼ C butter-flavored shortening
  • ¾ C milk
  • ¼ C orange zest
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 450° F. In a saucepan, combine orange juice, water and 1 cup Pioneer® Sugar and cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat, let cool.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the flour, baking powder and salt. Cut in the shortening with a pastry blender or fork until mixture resembles coarse corn meal. Add just enough milk to make a soft dough (it is not necessary to use all of the milk if not needed), stirring quickly. Roll out the dough into an 8 x 16-inch rectangle. Sprinkle the dough with the orange zest, ¼ cup Pioneer® Sugar and cinnamon. Roll up lengthwise (like a jellyroll). Cut into 16 slices. Place cut side down into a deep 9-inch pie pan, placing close together. Pour cooled orange juice mixture over biscuits. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden and bubbly. Carefully turn out onto platter while still hot.
