Orange Knots

One of my favorite treats in the wintertime is Orange Rolls. In this version I made them into a knot shape. I usually use Rhode's rolls to make them, but this year I decided to try making them all the way from scratch.

I used the same dough recipe as my Garlic Knots, but of course used an orange topping instead of garlic. They turned out perfect! The knots are rolled in butter and then in a sugar/orange rind mixture before baking. While they are still warm I drizzled an orange glaze over the top.
