TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:18 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup sugar, divided
  • 2 tablespoons grated orange peel
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 5 tablespoons butter, cubed
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 3/4 cup 2% milk
  • GLAZE:
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon grated orange peel

Directions

  • 1. In a small saucepan, combine 1/4 cup sugar, orange peel and water. Cook and stir over low heat for 3-5 minutes or until sugar is dissolved. Add butter; stir until melted. Remove from the heat; set aside.
