Homemade Orange Rolls from Scratch

I love these gooey homemade orange rolls from scratch.

They are bursting with orange citrus flavor and are topped with a creamy glaze.  Start your morning off on a good note.

6-1/4 cups all purpose flour

2 pkgs active dry yeast (3 TBS)
1/2 cup warm water
1 TBS white granulated sugar

4 TBS unsalted butter (1/4 cup)
1/2 cup white granulated sugar
2 tsp salt
2 well beaten eggs
1 cup warm water

oranges or mandarin oranges

Sift flour before measuring. Dissolve yeast in the 1/2 cup of warm water and add the sugar. Let stand for 20 minutes to proof.

Cream butter with 1/2 cup white sugar and salt. Add well beaten eggs and 1 cup warm water, mixing until all is dissolved. Add yeast mixture and remaining flour. Mix dough well.

Cover and place in the refrigerator for 24 hours.

About 3 hours before serving, roll out dough in a rectangle like you would for cinnamon rolls.

Spread liberally with melted butter and place pieces of orange (no membrane or pith) over dough. Slice off 1 inch pieces and place on greased baking sheet.

Cover and allow to rise in warm place approximately 2 hours.

PREHEAT oven to 400 degrees and bake for 15 minutes. While rolls are still warm, glaze with orange icing below.

Orange Icing
1 TBS unsalted butter
1 cup powdered (icing) sugar
1 TBS grated orange peel
1 TBS orange juice

Cream butter. Add powdered sugar and grated rind. Add orange juice and mix until creamy. Frost rolls.
