Orange Glazed Biscuits, a sweet treat for breakfast

I pinned this recipe a while ago and when I revisited the steps I was sold when I saw orange icing was involved. I have what I would consider a couple unique staple breakfast recipes up my sleeve, my sausage cream cheese biscuits are one of them and I am always looking for new and different breakfast ideas to serve when we have company.

First Impression

I will never forget my first bite of these biscuits right out of the oven, with the orange glaze of course. They literally melt in your mouth. John took about a half dozen of these to work and shared with his team, they devoured them.
