2 1/2 cups flour

1 Tablespoon baking powder

1 teaspoons salt

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/3 cup shortening

1 cup buttermilk


1/4 cup butter, softened (1 teaspoon per biscuit)

1 cup and 2 tablespoons orange marmalade (1 1/2 Tablespoons per biscuit)

1/4 cup orange juice

1 teaspoon butter, softened

1/4 teaspoon vanilla

2 tablespoons orange zest

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. For Biscuits: Combine dry ingredients for biscuit. Cut shortening into dry mixture. Add buttermilk and blend. Roll out biscuit dough on floured waxed paper until about 3/4 of an inch thick. Cut with a round biscuit cutter as if you were making biscuits. You'll get approximately 10-12 biscuits. Roll out each individual biscuit until it is 5 inches in diameter and 1/4 inch thick. On each biscuit, layer butter, marmalade and brown sugar. Roll up each biscuit and slice into 3 pinwheels of equal size. Place rolls in 2 (7X7 inch) baking pans. (You can also use other dimensions of pans The key is to keep the rolls close together). Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool for 5-10 minutes before icing For Icing: Mix powdered sugar, orange juice, margarine, cream cheese, salt, vanilla, and orange zest until smooth. Drizzle over rolls.
