Easy (and Delicious) Orange Rolls

Tuesday, March 18, 2014
 These are delicious, and really easy to put together.  All it takes are rhodes rolls (found in the freezer section of the store, or you could potentially make your own bread, and just think about how much you'd pull off to make a traditional dinner roll).  You also need a few basic ingredients from the pantry and an orange.  Seriously, I didn't expect to love these this much, but it's getting a star in my recipe box.  The recipe is originally from justgetoffyourbuttandbake, and I liked them the best hot out of the oven.  Here's the recipe...
Easy Orange Rolls
Ingredients:  12 rhodes rolls, 1 orange (grate the zest and then juice the orange to yield 3 T of orange juice), cinnamon sugar (1/2 c. sugar+1 T cinnamon, melted mutter (1/2 c). 1 c. powdered sugar, 1 T. butter melted
Instructions:  Thaw 12 rolls and cut into 4 pieces each.  (About an hour or two, they don't need to rise all the way b/c you will have them do that once you coat them.
In bowl one melt 1/4 c. butter.
In a second bowl mix sugar, cinnamon, and zest of the orange.
Roll each of the four pieces from all 12 roll in butter and then in the cinnamon mix.
 Place the four pieces back into cupcake pan, line them side by side.
 Let these rise until they are doubled in size.  Bake at 350 for 15 minutes.
Mix the powdered sugar, 1 T of melted butter, and 3 T of orange juice.  Drizzle this evenly over all 12 rolls.  Serve warm.
