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.

2 cups Flour

2 teaspoons baking Powder

1/2 teaspoon Salt

3/4 cup Milk

Cinnamon Sugar:

1/4 cup Sugar

1 to 2 teaspoons Ground Cinnamon
