My favorite Aunt Helen used to make these for family dinners when I was growing up. My home, growing up, was not the best, so any time we got to go to Aunt Helen"s was, well, everything was a treat. From her, to my cousin's, all the way down to the food. It was just such a blessing to be there with her. She would do these with the orange zest sugar, and with brown sugar and butter. I added cinnamon to the brown sugar one year and it was great. Let me know what you guys come up with.

How to Make Easy Twist Dinner Biscuits


  1. Spray a 8 X 8 or 9 X 9 square pan with Pam or other non-stick cooking spray, or line with parchment paper. I use parchment. I just like it better. You don't have a messy pan to clean, just toss the paper and Wa La.
  2. Get biscuit dough out of the can and separate each biscuit, placing each on a plate.
    Stir together the sugar and Orange zest, and place in a shallow pan or bowl. I usually use a pie or cake pan.
  3. Melt the butter, in another pie pan and place on a hot towel to keep butter melted. Slightly warm orange juice in microwave.
  4. Dip Biscuit in butter, then into sugar and place in prepared baking pan. Repeat until all biscuits are coated. Mix any remaining sugar mixture, including any and all butter clumping that fell into sugar while dipping, (cuz we all know that happens), into the juice.
  5. If it is liquid, add a little more sugar and zest to the mixture so you have a crumble type mixture. sprinkle over top of biscuits and bake according to package directions. Remove from oven on time, DO NOT ALLOW TO OVER COOK. the sugar will burn and the biscuits will be like a rock. Great for throwing, not so great for eating.
  6. Serve and enjoy!
