Mmmm. . . . Orange Rolls

The kids and I made up a batch of Bread Machine Orange Rolls for a yummy Saturday morning treat.  This is a great, foolproof recipe that is fun to do the night before.  This is the recipe that we put together by using parts from several different ones to make it perfect for our family.  Here's how. . . . .

Bread Machine Orange Rolls


1 c orange juice, heated to warm, not hot
1/3 c honey
2 T olive oil
1/2 t salt
3 c flour
1/2 T bread machine yeast

Peel from 1/2 orange
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar

Mix together
4 oz softened cream cheese
1/2 c powdered sugar
thin to frosting consistency with orange juice (about 3 Tablespoons)

Put dough ingredients into the bread machine in the order listed.  Start on the machine's dough cycle.

When the dough is rising, cut the peel off from one orange.  We use a sharp paring knife.  Try not to get the white stuff, just the zest (orange part of the peel).  Keep the cuts small.


Either chop the orange peel very finely and mix with the butter OR put the peel into the blender and chop.  I like to take my butter frozen and put 1/8 c chunks into the blender at a time until I get 1/2 cup.  It will chop up the frozen butter with the orange peel.  Put into a bowl, add sugar and let the butter soften.  Blend.

When the bread machine finishes, put dough out on to a floured surface and pat into a rectangle.  Spread with the butter/orange peel mix and roll up.  Slice and put into a greased cake pan.  Cover with foil and immediately refrigerate.

In the morning, uncover the rolls and put into a COLD oven.  Turn the oven on to 375 degrees and set the timer for 28 minutes.   Remove at 28 minutes.  Frost with glaze while hot.  Serve warm.

Enjoy!  I'll post a photo tomorrow morning if I can find the camera before they're all gone!
