These are sweet, sticky, syrupy, sickly sweet in the best way. But the orange zest and juice cut through the sugar so they’re not super rich.
And – like almost everything in this house – they’re mostly whole wheat. Don’t be intimidated by the length of the recipe. A lot of the prep work is hands-free (waiting for the dough to rise, etc), and they’re totally worth it.
Thank goodness I was able to conquer these rolls!
The dough for these cinnamon rolls is extremely tender and soft and the cream cheese goodness of the frosting is beyond delicious. The filling is made up of brown sugar and cinnamon and it gives a great richness to the standard cinnamon and white sugar combo.
