More About This Recipe
Just when you thought cinnamon rolls were ho-hum...
My mom was one of the World’s Finest Cinnamon Roll Makers. Growing up, I believed this was a real title, and I thought the title undoubtedly belonged to her.
Her cinnamon rolls where soft and perfect. Topped with rich, gooey icing, she’d serve them warm with a fork and cold glass of milk, and I’d wait anxiously for the very moment she said it was okay to dive in and enjoy.
A few years into mom making her cinnamon rolls, she got a little bored. Plus, our neighbor down the street starting making sinfully popular orange rolls, and mom had to keep up with the times.
So she swapped her same-old recipe—that perfect, heavenly concoction that is a cinnamon roll—and made it a sweet roll, filled with orange shavings and dripping with orange-flavored icing.
I took one dive into the batch and decided it was Pure Heaven on a Plate. I’d never tasted anything more incredible.
Nowadays, I don’t have time to make my mom’s homemade rolls. Life is much too busy.
But, I’ve got a secret up my sleeve. Pillsbury refrigerated Orange Sweet Roll dough, popped into pretty little orange halves and baked until golden brown.
These babies take just minutes to make. And minutes to bake. They’re quick, full of incredible orange flavor, and just about the closest thing to that classic homemade orange sweet roll deliciousness…without any of the work.
If only that meddling sweet-roll mixer-upper down the street could see us now! This beautiful recipe is all sorts of ready for enjoying.
