Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Oh yum! This was so good, the crew ate this in no time. This coffee cake recipe is full of orange flavor. The orange cream cheese filling inside each biscuit is a nice surprise. The glaze on top adds just enough sweetness but doesn't make this coffee cake recipe too sweet. This cake is really simple to make. A beginner cook can make this and impress everyone.

Note: Each oven is different. We had to bake ours for about 40 minutes for the top to be browned just right.

6Take a biscuit, flatten it and put a small dollop of the cream cheese mix in the middle. Then fold in half pinching ends together. This is like making a stuffed dumpling or a pierogi or a ravioli. If you are having trouble with the cream cheese coming out, use less in the next biscuit.
