I made these for a little morning meeting at work (they were still warm). Went together very easy. And yummy - very deluxe with the fresh orange and orange peel, and then the orange butter. A wonderful thing for that cold, grey climate of Scotland, too, like a platter of sunshine -- and special enough for teatime as well as breakfast.
Thanks for including it! thumbs_up.gif
