Quick Orange Biscuits

This past weekend I was craving cinnamon rolls and yeah, that wasn’t going to happen so I came up with an idea for something similar – a soft biscuit that was just sweet enough and quick to make 🙂

Quick Orange Biscuits


  • 3¾ cups all-purpose baking mix (I used Trader Joe’s but the big “B” brand will also work)
  • 2 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup Earth Balance buttery stick (or butter)
  • 1½ cups orange juice (bottled is fine)
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract

Glaze –

  • 1½ cup powdered sugar
  • 3 Tbsp orange juice


Preheat the oven to 400° and spray a baking sheet with cooking spray or line with parchment paper.

Mix the baking mix and sugar in a large mixing bowl, cut the buttery stick into small dices, add in and work in with your fingers until it is small crumbs. Stir in the vanilla and orange juice until a soft dough forms.

Dish out into 12 biscuits (I used a large disher) and bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or until turning golden on top. Take out and let cool mostly on the tray.

Stir the glaze until smooth and then drizzle over the biscuits till coated, let set up.

I found the biscuits taste even better when chilled and eaten cold.

Makes 12 biscuits.




  1. Ooh lovely! In a month or so we´ll start to be over run with oranges here in southern Spain and we always get given plenty by lovely neighbours – so am always on the lookout for orange recipes! Thank you 🙂

  2. Ooooh… I want to do lemon biscuits with chopped crystallized ginger… ooh ooh ooh!

  3. Oh! LOVE!
    I have to admit – I’m guilty of loving those horrible for you Pilsbury Orange Rolls – this will be a much better replacement for sure!

  4. Oh yum, orange flavoured treats are the best.

What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts!
