Looking through my recipes I found these oh so wonderful Orange Rolls

The best way to describe these pillowy soft rolls is clouds

They are like eating sweet orange flavored clouds!

You start with combining melted butter, sugar and orange zest into a topping for frozen roll dough

Place the roll dough in a greased 9 x 13 baking dish, leaving plenty of space for them to expand, and top with a dollop of the orange zest mixture

Cover them with a cooking oil sprayed piece of saran and set them aside to rise

After about 4 hours you will have fat little puffs of dough that are ready for baking.  Don’t worry if some of the topping moves around, it doesn’t matter, the flavor is still there!

While rolls are baking make the glaze

After baking for 13-15 minutes they will be golden brown,

and will smell divine, all yeasty and orange and sugary….

Pour the glaze all over the hot rolls and let them sit for several minutes before cutting

Be sure to serve these on a plate with a fork!

 

Holiday Orange Rolls

  • Servings: 12
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print

2 T butter, melted

6 T sugar

zest of 2 oranges

12 frozen dinner rolls [I used Bridgeford Parkerhouse rolls]

Orange Glaze:

2 T butter, melted

1 cup powdered sugar

juice of 1 orange

Combine butter, sugar and zest in a small bowl and mix to combine.  Place the rolls in a 9 x 13 greased baking dish, spaces between them.  Top each roll with a spoon of zest mixture, dividing mixture evenly among the rolls, and lightly press into rolls.  Cover the rolls with a cooking oil sprayed piece of saran wrap and let rise for 4 hours.  Bake at 375 for 13-15 minutes until golden.  Meanwhile make glaze by whisking melted butter with sugar and orange juice.  Pour glaze over hot rolls and let sit for 2-3 minutes before serving.  Reheat leftovers in microwave.  Makes 12 rolls.
