I have a orange tree in the backyard that is overflowing with oranges and I literally went out, picked a couple oranges came back into the kitchen and made these bad boys!!! And I mean Baaaaaad!!! You'll be hooked like me! ENJOY!

Orange Mini-Muffins with Brown Sugar Glaze
Adapted from Pioneer Woman

1 cup sugar
1 cup butter, softened

1 cup buttermilk (or just add 1 TBSP white vinegar to just under 1 cup milk)
1 tsp baking soda
2 cups flour, sifted
Grated rind of 2 oranges
Juice of 2 oranges
1 cup brown sugar

Preheat oven to 375*F degrees. Cream butter and sugar together. Add eggs and mix well. Dissolve baking soda in buttermilk; pour in mixing bowl. Add 2 cups flour and orange rind and mix together well. Fill mini muffin pans 2/3 full and bake for 12-17 minutes or until light golden. Remove from oven.

Combine 1 cup brown sugar with the juice from the two oranges. Stir together, and drizzle over warm muffins. Remove from pans immediately and eat warm!
