ORANGE BUTTER SWEET ROLLS

I used to take Orange Rolls to families when I was a Hospice Nurse. There's just something about a homemade Orange Roll that is comforting. Once I took four dozen to the hospital when the patient was in ICU (later came out so family could be with him. He passed away next day). I told the sons to take the ICU staff 2 dozen of the rolls..a little "give my daddy special care token". The staff was thrilled and so was the family to have the tasty orange rolls. It's a nice thing to take to a friend having a tough time and just say "Turn on the coffee pot".

Roll dough out on a floured surface with rolling pin in a rectangle (about 16x8) and 1/2 inch thick. Spread with 1/2 cup butter leaving 1/2 inch edge on dough. Spread 1 1/2 cup sugar on top of butter, 2 cups flake coconut and 1/4 cup orange rind on top of coconut. Roll up as cinnamon rolls and cut 1 inch thick rolls (can use dental floss to measure and cut rolls out.)
4
Place in greased pans, cover and let rise until doubled in size. Bake in a 350 F. preheated oven 25-30 minutes. Cool slightly, then glaze.
