Ingredients

  • 1 can refrigerated honey butter biscuits (8 biscuits), such as Pillsbury™ Grands!™ Flaky Layers
  • ¼ Cup chopped dried apricots
  • ¼ Cup sweetened dried cranberries
  • 2 Tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 Cup powdered sugar
  • ¼ Teaspoon pure orange extract, such as Watkins™
  • 1 medium orange (¼ teaspoon grated peel and 2 to 3 tablespoons juice)

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Separate the dough into 8 biscuits on a work surface; sprinkle with the apricots and cranberries. Gather the biscuits and fruit into a ball. Knead lightly until fruit is incorporated, 8 to 12 times (do not over-mix).

Press into a 10-inch round baking pan. With a sharp knife, cut the dough into 8 wedges. Place the wedges 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Lightly brush the tops of the wedges with 1 tablespoon of the melted butter.

Bake until golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from the pan to a cooling rack. Cool 15 minutes.

In a small bowl, mix the powdered sugar, orange extract, orange peel, orange juice, and the remaining 1 tablespoon melted butter with a whisk until smooth and thin enough to drizzle. Drizzle the glaze over the biscones. Store covered.

Orange Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Orange Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
