Orange Rolls

I stumbled upon this easy recipe for orange rolls. See, I didn't even wait to take a picture for the blog before eating them. (I wondered, though, if I could skip the first steps and just add the glaze after the rolls are baked? Might try that next time to avoid the sugary texture...)

2 Tbl. butter, melted
6 Tbl. sugar
zest of 1 or 2 oranges
12 Rhodes® frozen dinner rolls

Orange Glaze:
2 Tbl. butter, melted
1 c. powdered sugar
juice of 1 orange juice

Combine melted butter, sugar and orange zest in a small bowl. Dip the tops of the frozen rolls into mixture and place in a greased 9X13 casserole dish, leaving plenty of room between. Spray plastic wrap with cooking spray and cover the rolls. Allow to rise for about four hours or until puffed and touching. Bake at 350 degrees for 13-15 minutes or until lightly golden brown. Combine all glaze ingredients; whisk until smooth. Drizzle over warm rolls. Serve warm or at room temperature. Best eaten the day they are made.
