Easy Orange Rolls
Recipe from Southern Living
1/2 (8 oz) pkg cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp. orange zest
1 (11 Oz.) can refrigerated French Bread Dough
2 T. granulated sugar
1 T. butter, melted
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 T. orange juice
1. Preheat oven to 375*. Beat cream cheese, light brown sugar, and orange zest at medium speed with an electric mixer until smooth.
2. Unroll French bread dough onto a lightly floured surface. Spread cream cheese mixture over dough, leaving a 1/4” border. Sprinkle with granulated sugar. Gently roll up dough, starting at 1 long side. Cut into 11 slices. Place slices in a lightly greased 8” round cake pan. Brush top of dough with melted butter.
3. Bake at 375* for 25 to 30 mins. or until golden. Stir together powdered sugar and orange juice in a small bowl until smooth. Drizzle over hot rolls. Serve immediately.
I used Pillsbury’s Crusty French Loaf bread
Just unroll and flatten out
Spread the cream cheese mixture on and the sugar. Leave about 1/4” uncovered. This is so you can press the dough together and it will seal nicely.
Roll it up nice and long
And cut the rolls. Sorry the picture is so washed out. I use dental floss. Thread works well too but I love how dental floss cuts the rolls, twist and pull! I even used cinnamon flavored! LOL!
Place the rolls next to each other in an 8” cake pan.
Next time I would make my rolls just a little larger even though I might end up with one or two less. The size was a little skimpy to me.
I would still prefer a nice batch of yeast homemade rolls but these were really pretty good for fast. You can’t beat the time and effort that went into these.
Set the table with some pretty red dishes. These happen to be some old Avon ones I’ve had for about thirty years.
Light a candle too. I am pretty sure I do this more for me than for Mr. Brown Socks. It makes any meal seem special.
Hey, where’s the grapefruit picture? I know we had grapefruit too….oh well, insert grapefruit in your visual…Add some eggs and a cup of coffee and this makes for a slightly (ever so slighty) romantic Valentine’s breakfast.

I love visiting both of these blogs and always come away with great inspiration for tables and food.
Debbie at Confessions of a Plate Addict came up with a pretty good solution for my porcelain cat mystery on my last post. She quoted from someone who had visited a Hummel factory in Germany and this is what was said ~~
"Each figurine has a hole somewhere. The hole allows gas to escape from the inside of the figurine. Without the hole, the figurine would burst, breaking other figurines in the rack."
Thanks Debbie! Makes sense to me!
I always appreciate your visit to 47th Street.
