Orange Filling for Sweet Rolls

photo-47-1

Who doesn’t like a good sweet roll? My favorite has always been orange!

But where to find a good orange filling and glaze? There are tons of recipes for cinnamon, but not so many for orange. So here’s what I use!

And what would a sweet roll be without a song? Well, I guess there’s no answer for that, but here’s Nat King Cole singing “Orange Colored Sky.”

Orange Filling for Sweet Rolls

Ingredients

  • Prepare your favorite roll dough that makes 12 sweet rolls.
  • Filling
  • 6 tablespoons Land O’ Lakes butter
  • 3 - 4 tablespoons orange juice concentrate
  • 1 cup sugar
  • Grated orange peel from one large orange

Instructions

  1. Over low heat, let butter melt, then add orange juice concentrate. Stir together.
  2. Add sugar and stir. Let simmer over low heat while making orange zest by grating orange peel into mixture.
  3. Stir constantly for about 3 minutes over medium heat until all ingredients are combined and mixture is smooth.
  4. Remove the sauce pan from the burner. Make zest by grating orange into sauce pan. Stir to combine. Let mixture cool before spreading on rolled out dough.
  5. Roll dough into a log and cut with unflavored dental floss into 12 rolls.
  6. Let rise until double and bake as you would cinnamon rolls.
  7. You can use the filling as a topping and put it on the hot rolls. Or you can make a glaze.
