I realize that with this third posting, the site is starting to look as if it is devoted solely to donuts. That is not the case. I simply was checking out the recipes on my favorite recipe website (www.tasteofhome.com) when I came across a recipe called Cinnamon Fruit Biscuits. The biscuits in the accompanying photo looked like donuts to me. (Obviously, I had donuts on the mind from what I had baked a few days earlier.)
Not only did I still have a container of refrigerated biscuits, I had all the other required ingredients. The prep time was short, as was the baking time, and besides, I needed something for breakfast. I substituted orange marmalade for the strawberry jam. Then, I substituted cardamom for the cinnamon, thinking this to be a better spice to complement the orange flavor.
I was very pleased with the end product. When I first opened the oven door, the spicy orange scent reminded me of the orange sweet rolls I had as a child. The biscuits were crunchy on the outside and warm on the inside. The cardamom sugar and orange marmalade were certainly a combination that made this biscuit a breakfast treat to have again and again.
The photo below is Taste of Home’s picture of their fruited biscuits. A photo of my orange biscuits can be found on the Recipes page along with the recipe for the Orange Cardamom Biscuits.
