  • 2 cans (8 ounces each) citrus salad, undrained
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 can (11 ounces) mandarin oranges, undrained
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons sugar, divided
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup cold butter
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup 2% milk
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 6 pecan halves
  • Half-and-half cream, optional


  1. Drain citrus salad, reserving 1/4 cup juice. In a large bowl, combine the brown sugar, flour and reserved juice. Stir in citrus salad and oranges. Divide among six 6-oz. ramekins or custard cups; dot with butter.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the flour, 2 tablespoons sugar, baking powder and salt; cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in egg and milk. Drop by spoonfuls over fruit mixture. Combine cinnamon and remaining sugar; sprinkle over tops.
  3. Bake at 425° for 15-18 minutes or until filling is bubbly and a toothpick inserted in topping comes out clean. Top each with a pecan half. Serve with cream if desired.
