Wild Orange Cinnamon Rolls

Advertisements

I went looking for a different recipe for Christmas morning, one that my family would like and yet different from what I usually do and that’s when I found this one pushed to the side folded and, in the middle of my box just waiting for me to blow the dust off and use once again.


Pro tip: Make the dough tonight so they’ll be ready to pop in the oven in the morning!

Instructions

  1. Heat the milk in a pan until it begins bubbling. Remove from heat and add butter. Stir until the butter melts.
  2. When the milk is lukewarm, add yeast and allow to proof for 10 minutes.
  3. Put sugar, 3 cups of flour, salt, and eggs into a mixer. Add in the yeast mixture. Mix thoroughly.
  4. Add in the remaining flour until the dough is no longer sticky. Knead for 5 minutes, or until smooth and soft.
  5. Oil a large bowl and place the dough in the bowl. Turn to coat the dough with oil. Cover with a cloth and let rise in a warm place until it’s double in size (about an hour).
  6. Deflate the dough and put onto a floured surface. Roll out into a 12×14 rectangle and spread with softened butter.
  7. Mix the brown sugar and cinnamon together. Sprinkle over the dough.
  8. Roll up the dough into a log and cut into 12 pieces.
  9. Line a 9×13 pan with parchment paper (or grease it). Place the rolled dough pieces into the pan and cover with plastic wrap. Place in the refrigerator overnight.
  10. In the morning, remove from the refrigerator and set in a warm place to rise for an hour.
  11. Once the dough has risen, bake at 350 °F for 25–30 minutes, or until golden brown.
  12. Mix the butter, vanilla, Wild Orange essential oil, powdered sugar, and whipping cream together until smooth. Spread over warm rolls and enjoy.
