Orange Biscuits

I am always happy when I find* a recipe that makes entertaining a little bit easier.  These orange biscuits fit the bill, they can even be prepared the night before and then cooked when you need them.  A morning coffee date doesn’t get much easier (or tastier) than this.

Glaze:

1/4 cup Butter

1/2 cup Sugar

2 teaspoons Orange Zest

Biscuits:

1/4 cup cold Butter, cut into small pieces

2 cups Flour

2 teaspoons baking Powder

1/2 teaspoon Salt

3/4 cup Milk

1 1/2 tablespoons melted Butter

Cinnamon Sugar:

1/4 cup Sugar

1 to 2 teaspoons Ground Cinnamon

2 tablespoons Cilantro, chopped

1/2 cup Monterey Jack Cheese, shredded

1/2 cup Tortilla Strips, fried (you will need 1/2 cup of vegetable oil to fry 2 corn tortillas)
