Orange Rolls

Today's recipe is for Orange Rolls.

 I started by mixing the dough in my Kitchenaid. 

Then roll it out and spread melted butter on it.

Sprinkle your sugar mixed with grated orange rinds on top.

Roll it up.

Slice them and dip them into a bowl of orange sugar. {I make this by grating an orange with a small grater, you could use a zester if you have one. It puts all kinds of orange flavor into the sugar}

 Place in a pan and let rise until double in size.

Bake and drizzle with orange glaze while still warm.
