How to Make Pineapple-Cranberry Orange Rolls


  • 1DOUGH:
    Dissolve yeast in warm water. Add milk, butter, sugar, salt, eggs and 1 1/3 cups of the flour- beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough- use a little more if needed. Place dough in a greased bowl and turn once to grease top. Cover and let rise until double in size, away from draft, about 1 hour.
    Melt butter in saucepan. Add remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat and simmer for 3 minutes or until thickened.Remove from heat. Cool.
  • 3Punch dough down and divide in 1/2. Roll each 1/2 into a 15x12-inch rectangle. Spread with filling. Sprinkle on nuts if desired. Roll up like jelly roll, starting with 15-inch side.
  • 4Slice into 1-inch rolls. Place cut side down in 2 greased 13x9-inch baking pans lined with parchment paper. Cover and let rise until double in size, about 45 minutes.
    Bake in 350^ preheated oven for 25-30 minutes. Cool. When cool lift out roll with parchment paper and frost. Frost or drizzle with glaze.
  • 5You can bake them both and freeze one if you like to have it another day.
