Get Your Vitamin C!!

Mmm...this is my ALL TIME favorite breakfast in the whole wide world =) my amazing cook of a mother used to make this when I was growing up and I got so excited when she would make it. My mom is in a group called "Bunko", it's a dice game. Me and some others grew up as the "Bunko Kids", that gave us all 12 mothers. We couldn't ever get away with too much because our Bunko Moms tended to pop up in the right places at the wrong time. My mom and all the Bunko moms put together a cook book with all their family recipes, this one being my moms. It's a must try!! I hope you guys enjoy!
Orange Bread
From the Kitchen of Peggy Gigax
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1 Tablespoon grated orange rind
2 (11 oz) cans buttermilk biscuits
1 (8 oz) pkg. cream cheese, cut into 20 squares
1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted
Glaze: 1 cup sifted powdered sugar
2 Tablespoons orange juice
Combine 1st three ingredients together in bowl, set aside. Separate biscuits as you remove the from can. Ten gently spilt each biscuit in half. Place a square of cream cheese between each half and put halves back together and pinch edges to seal. Dip in melted butter, then dredge in sugar mixture. Stand biscuits on edge in lightly greased bundt pan, spacing evenly. Do this for both cans of biscuits. Drizzle with remaining butter & sprinkle with remaining sugar mixture. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes, or until golden brown.
Remove from oven and turn pan over on plate. Glaze while hot.
Best Served hot...mmmmm
