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!
