I want to share with you my California Orange Fig Biscuits. They are great warm, right out of the oven, for breakfast or brunch. Or later on the day with some vanilla ice cream; à la mode. My husband loves them warm right out of the oven and my girls with ice cream and whipped cream. I’ll have them either way, but mainly in the late afternoon with a hot cup of coffee (or tea).

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes

Dreamy orange and fig flavor combination in biscuits. Perfect for brunch, breakfast or to snack with an afternoon tea.


  • 2 cups All Purpose Flour
  • 1 tablespoon Sugar 
  • 1 tablespoon Baking Powder 
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt 
  • 5 tablespoons Butter (unsalted & cold) 
  • 3/4 cup Milk 2/3 California Orange Fig Spread (10oz jar) 
  • 1 tablespoon heavy cream (or egg wash) 
  • Coarse Sugar (optional)


1. Preheat oven 400 degrees.
2. In a medium bowl (or electric stand mixer) whisk flour, sugar, baking soda and salt together until well combined.
3. Add in the unsalted cold butter cut into small cubes and mix until crumbly.
4. Add in the milk until the dough comes together into a ball.
5. Transfer dough into a well floured surface.
6. Spread the dough into a 13x11 inch rectangle.
7. Placing the longest side of the dough in front of you start spreading the fig "spread" evenly.
8. Roll like you would a jelly roll.
9. Cut the roll into 1 inch rounds. You should end up with at least 13 biscuits.
10. Place them into a cookie sheet (I sprayed mine with cooking spray, but you don't need to if you are using a nonstick sheet).
11. Brush the heavy cream (or egg wash) over each biscuit.
12. Sprinkle with coarse sugar (raw sugar).
13. Bake for about 15 minutes or until biscuits are golden and puffed up.
14. Transfer to a wire rack to cool a little before enjoying.


Serve warm- right from the oven or let the biscuits cool-off completely.
