Cranberry-Orange Biscuits  
Cranberry-Orange Biscuits

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon finely shredded orange peel (we used dried but think dried should be doubled)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup dried cranberries, finely snipped
1 8-ounce container orange yogurt or vanilla yogurt

1. In a large bowl, stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, orange peel, salt, and baking soda. Using a pastry blender, cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add cranberries; toss until mixed. Make a well in center of the flour mixture. Add yogurt all at once to the flour mixture. Using a fork, stir just until moistened.

2. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Quickly knead dough by gently folding and pressing dough 10 to 12 strokes or until nearly smooth. Pat or lightly roll dough to 1/2 inch thickness. Cut dough with a floured 2-1/2-inch biscuit cutter, dipping the cutter into flour between cuts. Place biscuits 1 inch apart on an ungreased baking sheet.

Or make drop biscuits and just put approximately 1 inch drops on cookie sheet. Makes life easier and just as tasty.

3. Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden. Remove from baking sheet. Serve warm. Makes 10 biscuits.

Me too. I'm going to try a scone recipe I found. I just love the comb.

My cousin made a orange/cranberry cheese cake last Christmas. SOOOO good.
