Orange rolls recipe from Rhodes!

Orange Butterflake Rolls
(from rhodes rolls)

12 Rhodes Texas™ Rolls, thawed but still cold (mine were dinner rolls, which are smaller so I cut them into 3-4 pieces)
zest from 1 large orange (the thin outer peel of the orange- not the white stuff)
3/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup butter, melted


1 cup powdered sugar
1 tablespoon butter, melted

2-3 T orange juice

Cut each Texas roll into 5 equal pieces. Flatten each piece slightly. In a small bowl, combine orange zest and sugar. Dip both sides of each roll piece into butter and then orange sugar mixture. Stack five pieces together and place, on their sides, in a well sprayed muffin cup. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise until double in size. Remove wrap and bake at 350°F 10-12 minutes. Remove from pan immediately and place on cooling rack. Combine icing ingredients and mix well. Brush over rolls while still warm.

These were fast and easy!  I tried an orange roll recipe from scratch a while back and this turned out better.  I liked the pieces, because they distributed the flavor well throughout the whole roll.

I made another version of this from Rhodes where I rolled them out in a rope, tied into a loose knot, then dipped in the butter, then sugar/orange mixture. slightly faster (those layers got a little old to me) and just as good.
i love me my orange rolls.
