Super soft orange sweet rolls with orange butter cream frosting.
Orange sweet rolls have to be one of my favorite things about Christmas. My mom serves them every year for breakfast and we all go crazy over them. They are the perfect Christmas treat. Let’s not even get started on the orange butter cream frosting. I could eat that straight from the bowl!
It took me about 3 tries to get this recipe perfect for all of you and I finally nailed it! These are seriously the best orange rolls I’ve ever had!
In this recipe I’ll be featuring some of my favorite Pampered Chef baking tools. They are ones I love and use all the time while baking. Must have’s in my book. ;)
For this recipe I used my prep bowls and easy read measuring cups for my yeast mixture and warming the milk. They are microwave safe, which I love! You’ll know your yeast is done when it’s nice and bubbly like above.
When mixing my dough I Iike to use a Mix N’ Scraper to help to keep the flour off the edges. You can also use a mixer with a dough hook if you have one which makes the kneading a little easier. ;)
Once the dough is to hard to stir I will knead it with my hands for about 5 minutes. You want the dough to be soft but not too sticky. Almost like play dough, but not quite as hard.
Once your dough is ready, roll it out on a floured surface and form a 15×20 rectangle. It doesn’t have to be perfect. Then use your silicone brush to put on your filling.
Then roll up your dough and cut it with floss. Just slide the floss under the dough and then pull it up. Cut your rolls into about 1 inch pieces.
Butter a large sheet pan and then place the rolls on the pan about 1 inch apart.
Bake them just until golden brown. You don’t want to over cook them. They are the best when they are super soft! Are you drooling yet?
The orange zest makes these rolls PERFECT!
Next grab a small bowl (I love Pampered Chef batter bowls) and whip up your orange buttercream frosting. The orange extract adds the perfect amount of orange flavor to the frosting. Oh and I have to mention my favorite measuring spoons EVER… these adjustable measuring spoons. They are the ones I use all the time!
Once your frosting is nice and fluffy spread it on those delicious rolls! The more frosting the better!!
Mmm…. I am still dreaming about these delicious orange sweet rolls. They are unbelievably tasty! I cannot wait to make them again and again.
I served these bad boys up with my favorite spatula and they were gone within minutes! Put them on your baking list this weekend. You will not be disappointed! ;)
So let’s hear it… orange rolls or cinnamon rolls? I vote orange rolls! ;)
