Vegan Orange Rolls

You can make these with real butter, or with a vegan substitute.  Regardless, I think they taste the same (or close enough).  And...yay...it's actually vegan....a new road some of my family is on....which makes meals together...interesting.  Every great once in awhile I stumble upon something that doesn't take a lot of tweaking to make it vegan. The original recipe came from homebasedmom.  I just used some butter substitutes when it called for butter.    Orange rolls have been universally loved for those of those who are still carnivores and pea protein lovers.  If you have special food needs, or...just like orange rolls...here's a quick and easy way to whip them up.
Orange Rolls
Roll Ingredients:  12 frozen Rhodes dinner rolls (thawed), rind of one orange (grated), 1/2 c sugar, 1/2 c. butter (or butter substitute)
Glaze Ingredients: 1 c. powdered sugar, 2 T melted butter (or substitute), 2 T orange juice
Roll Instructions:  
1.  Thaw dough in the fridge overnight or set out for a few hours prior to use (cover).  
2.  Grate the orange rind and toss with sugar.  
3.  Roll thawed rolls in 1/2 c. melted butter.  Roll in sugar and rind mix.  
4.  Place in greased 9x13 pan.  
5.  Cover rolls with syran wrap and allow to rise for 1 hour (double in size).  
6.  Remove wrap and bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes.  
7.  Cool for five minutes.  Mix glaze ingredients and pour over the top of rolls.
