 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      cup           milk
      1/2  cup           sour cream
    2                    eggs
    3 1/2  cups          all-purpose flour
    1      cup           sugar
    1 1/2  tablespoons   baking powder
      1/2  teaspoon      salt
    1 1/2  sticks        cold butter, cut in pats
      1/2  cup           orange juice
                         zest of one orange
    2      tablespoons   orange-flavored liqueur
                         light brown sugar, about 1/4 cup
 
 Preaheat oven to 350.  Butter standard muffin tins.  Whisk the milk, sour
 cream and eggs together in a mixing bowl and set aside.  In the bowl of an
 electric mixer fitted with a paddle or using a wooden spoon in a mixing
 bowl, combine the dry ingredients.  Cut in the butter until the mixture
 resembles cornmeal.  Pour the sour cream mixture into the butter and flour
 mixture and mix until the dough comes together.  Do not over mix.  Gently
 fold the orange juice, zest and orange liqueur into the batter.  Using an
 ice cream scoop, fill the muffin cups 3/4 full.  Sprinkle the tops with a
 little brown sugar, about 1/2 to 3/4 teaspoon per muffin.  Bake in the
 center of the oven for about 25 minutes.  Immediately turn muffins out of
 the tins onto a cooling rack.
