Description

These pretty rolls are sure to brighten any day!

Ingredients

  • FOR THE ROLLS:
  • ½ cups Water
  • ½ cups Milk
  • ⅓ cups Sugar
  • 2-¼ teaspoons Active Dry Yeast (.25 Oz Package)
  • 1 whole Egg
  • ⅓ cups Butter, Softened
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 3-¾ cups Bread Flour
  • _____
  • FOR THE FILLING:
  • 1 cup Brown Sugar
  • ⅓ cups Butter, Softened
  • 2 whole Oranges (just The Zest; Reserve The Juice)
  • _____
  • FOR THE GLAZE:
  • 3 ounces, weight Cream Cheese, Softened
  • ¼ cups Butter, Softened
  • 1-½ cup Powdered Sugar
  • ½ teaspoons Almond Extract
  • ⅛ teaspoons Salt
  • ½ whole Orange, Just The Juice

Preparation

*Prep time includes the first rise, but does not include the second overnight rise.

In a small saucepan, heat the milk and water until the mixture reaches 120 degrees. Pour the mixture into the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a dough hook. Add the sugar and yeast, stir once, and let sit until the mixture bubbles (around 10 minutes).

With the mixer on medium low speed, add the egg, butter, salt and flour. Increase the speed to medium for 8 minutes. The dough will be slightly sticky.

Grease a medium-sized metal bowl. Add the dough, and turn to coat the top and bottom of the dough. Cover with a towel and let the dough rise in a warm place for one hour. After the first rise, punch to deflate the dough, and cover again with the towel while you mix together the brown sugar, butter, and orange zest for the filling.

Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and roll into a 25 x 6 inch rectangle (you may want to split this into two 13 x 6 inch rectangles). Spread the dough with the filling mixture. Roll up the dough and pinch together the seam. Slice into 24 one inch slices and place on a baking sheet. Cover with Saran Wrap and refrigerate overnight. Alternately, cover with a clean kitchen towel and let rise in a warm place for about 45 minutes.

Let the refrigerated rolls sit at room temperature for about 30 minutes prior to baking.

Preheat the oven to 350°. Uncover and bake the rolls in a preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, until the tops of the rolls begin to brown. While the rolls bake, whisk together the icing ingredients until smooth. Remove the rolls from the oven and top with the icing.

I didn’t use this dough & filling recipe, but we did use the glaze – delicious! Thank you!

I made this dough Thursday night, rolled them up and baked this this morning (Saturday). What a beautiful dough, and what an awesome orange roll. I had only eaten Rhodes orange rolls and unable to find those anywhere. No need to buy pre-made or frozen again! Awesome rolls!

Mmmmmm! These weren’t too difficult and turned out delicious!! It’s a little bit of a lengthy process but definitely worth it!

These just came out of the oven and I can’t stop eating them! They are absolutely delicious.

The recipe was very easy to follow and everything turned out as expected. The only other orange roll I’ve had was Rhodes Frozen Orange Rolls, and it was once a long time ago.

I will never buy Rhodes Frozen Orange Rolls again because now I know how easy and even more delicious an orange roll can be!

A nice change from cinnamon buns and they definitely brighten up the day. I made them the night before and baked them in the morning. I am surprised how quick and easy these were and the dough is very easy and nice to work with.
