Balance out your food choices throughout the day so you can enjoy one of these sweet orange rolls.
Where to Place the Dough to Rise
If you don't have a warm or draft-free place for you to place the dough to rise, you can turn your oven on to 170ºF for 3 min. Turn oven off, then place the dough in the warm, not hot, oven to rise until doubled in volume as directed.
Since the rich dough is quite soft, you can use a hand mixer (or paddle attachment of a stand mixer) to mix the bread ingredients before kneading by hand as directed. If you have a dough hook attachment for your stand mixer, you can instead use that to knead the dough.
Technique for Testing Dough
The dough is ready when it has doubled in volume and a gentle impression with your finger holds its shape and doesn't spring back.
These delicious rolls can be baked ahead of time. Store in airtight container up to 24 hours. If desired, warm in microwave oven just before serving. Or, place the dough slices in prepared muffin cups as directed; cover tightly with plastic wrap. Refrigerate up to 12 hours. When ready to serve, let rise, loosely covered with plastic wrap, in warm place 1-1/2 hours or until doubled in volume. Uncover, then bake as directed.
To add a simple cream cheese glaze, beat additional 4 oz. cream cheese with 1/2 cup powdered sugar and 1 Tbsp. milk in small bowl with mixer until blended. If too thick to easily drizzle over the warm rolls, blend in additional 1 Tbsp. milk. Drizzle over the warm rolls.
