Orange Rolls

This could be the recipe that my kids request most. Perfect for a dinner roll, these are as good as dessert! Add to the deliciousness, ease and simple ingredients and you have a perfect side-dish or yummy addition to brunch.

Orange Rolls

12 Rhodes rolls cut in half
(thaw 6 at a time in a baggie in the microwave for 45 seconds)
Arrange rolls in a 9X13 greased glass pan

Mix in sauce pan:
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter (1/2 cube)
grated peel of an orange (or 1 Tbsp orange peel)
Bring to a quick boil. Pour over rolls. Let rise. (Rising takes 1-2 hours)
Bake at 350 for 20 minutes.

Drizzle hot rolls with glaze:
1 cup powdered sugar
1 Tbsp melted butter
2 Tbsp orange juice (made up to drink)
