This recipe comes from an old church cookbook from Belfast, Maine dated 1954. I love to collect cookbooks, and I bought this one years ago at an antique shop.
These biscuits are so good--and with orange being my favorite flavor, it's easy to eat at least 2 at a time.
Remember, they are biscuits, not rolls.
enjoy!

  2. Pour into nine muffin pans.
  3. Sift flour, salt and baking powder, then cut in the shortening.
  4. Add milk and then stir until the dough follows the fork around the bowl.

  6. Roll 1/4 inch thick
  7. Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar mixture and then roll like a jelly roll.
