Orange Biscuits

Orange Biscuits

"Orange or Lemon Bisquicks" was a popular recipe on Bisquick boxes in the 1940s. The original recipe directed: "Before baking, dip 1/2 cube loaf sugar into orange or lemon juice. Press into top of each Bisquick." We simplified things by brushing with orange juice and sprinkling with sugar.
