Orange Rolls

Mom's favorite orange rolls were made by Dick's Bakery and they were (and hopefully still are) fan tan shaped, buttery and flaky rolls, with a bright, orange, citrus glaze.  Anything orange flavor made the cut on her list of top favorite treats, including almond chicken with orange sauce, jelly-candy orange slices and when the scales allowed, Sweet's Candy chocolate covered orange sticks fact, all things orange, except when it came to Halloween Jelly Beans....she ate all the black ones.  Go figure!  But when dinner was in fifteen minutes and Dick's bakery was a drive away, and there was a can of biscuits in the refrigerator, this quick and easy recipe fit the ticket and nudged all other orange treats out of top spot. This quick and easy recipe will unfailingly satisfy an orange sweet tooth in a hurry. 

Orange Rolls
1 can refrigerator buttermilk biscuits
   (or homemade biscuit dough, cut into 3/4 inch rounds)
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter
2 tab. grated orange rind

-Preheat oven to 380 degrees.

-In medium saucepan, melt butter then stir in sugar and orange rind over medium-high heat until mixture is smooth.  (Do not bring to a boil.)

-Spray bottom of 10 inch glass pie plate with vegetable oil spray.  Dip each biscuit dough round on both sides, in orange-sugar mixture.  Place in prepared pie plate.  Cover the bottom of the pie plate with orange rolls.  Bake in preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes, until biscuits are slightly golden around the edges.

-Serve warm.  Makes 8 orange rolls.
