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".

How to Make ORANGE BUTTER SWEET ROLLS

Step-by-Step

  1. ROLLS: Dissolve yeast in warm water. Add salt and sugar; stir to dissolve. Add beaten eggs, sour cream, milk, and butter. Add flour, one cup at a time. Beat well then kneed until smooth and silky.
  2. Put dough in large pan and Let rise until doubled in size. I set mine in the microwave, cover lightly with a damp kitchen towel. Let it rise several hours.
  3. 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.
  5. GLAZE: Boil all glaze ingredients 3 minutes, cool slightly then glaze . DELICIOUS !!
  6. NOTE THE FILLING OR WHAT EVER YOU CALL IT IS LISTED WITH AMOUNTS. THEY ARE NOT LISTED ANY OTHER PLACE.
