While this is not at all healthy, this is one of the best breakfast/dessert combo I have ever made. No lie.
Last night before I cooked dinner I decide to make them for dessert. It was more of "in case they don't turn out I would hate to serve them for breakfast" attempt. It's always better to practice something before you serve it to others. Don't ya think?
So without further ado, I present to you the Mama Dub's Homemade Orange Rolls. They are probably one of the easiest things I have ever baked and they rank in the top 3 for taste! The best part is that they are small and easy to serve. It's like pull apart bread.
And because I like visuals...
What you Need:
1 Can of Butter Milk Jumbo Biscuits (8 count)
2-3 tbsp of melted butter
2 Medium size oranges (used for zest & juice)
1/3 Cup REAL Sugar
1/3 Cup Powdered Sugar
1/2 block of Original Cream Cheese (do not use the low-fat)
Optional: 1/4 cup walnuts
1- Grease a round baking pan and place 1 jumbo biscuit in the center.
2- Slice all 7 remaining biscuits in half. Put them in the pan around the center one to make a flower design. You will need to squish them close together to make them all fit. *Spoon your melted butter over the biscuits just to give them a little glaze.
3- Zest two oranges (though I used a zester, I have been known in the past to use a cheese grater. It works just the same. You should end up with about 2 tbsp of Orange zest.
4- Mix together your 1/3 cup sugar, 2 tbsp orange zest and add your walnuts if you choose. Otherwise, the sugar and the zest it all you need.
5- Sprinkle your mix over the biscuits and bake for 20 mins at 350*.
6- Mix together your 1/3 cup Powdered Sugar and your 1/2 block cream cheese. Squeeze 1/2 of an orange into the mixture to give it a light orange flavor. -OH SO GOOD-
*You can put the cream cheese in the microwave to soften. It really doesn't matter how soft it gets.
7- Take out of oven
8- Spread your icing over the rolls when they come out of the oven.
9- Serve with left over orange slices for breakfast or as a dessert.
When you make them (because I know you can resist) let me know just how much you loved them!
See... not healthy, but easy and tasty. Sometimes that's what matters.
