I LOVE Orange Rolls (you know me and citrus!). So when I found this recipe on Our Best Bites, I knew I had to try it! They came together so fast and they are so totally yum! They have a biscuit texture with orange roll flavor...seriously, they are addicting! So the next time you want a sweet roll for breakfast with out the hassle of letting yeast dough rise, this is for you!
Orange Rolls (No Rise)
(makes 12 rolls)
For the dough:
3/4 cup cottage cheese
1/3 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup sugar
4 T butter, melted
1 t vanilla
2 cups (9 oz.) flour
1 T baking powder
1/2 t salt
1/4 t baking soda
4 T butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
zest from 1 orange (I used 2 Cuties mandarins)
2/3 cup powdered sugar
1 T melted butter
2 T orange juice (I juiced the two mandarins that I zested)
Preheat the oven to 400. In a food processor, combine the cottage cheese, buttermilk, melted butter and vanilla. Process until smooth, about 10 seconds.
Now, add the flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda and pulse in short bursts just until the dough clumps together (DO NOT over-process). The dough will be very soft. Don't add any more flour! Scrape the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead a few times just until smooth.
Roll the dough out on a lightly floured surface. Make it into a 12x15 rectangle.
Now put the filling on. Spread the dough with the softened butter, sprinkle evenly with the sugar and the orange zest. Roll the dough from the long side, making a long snake. Cut it into 12 equal parts and place into a greased pie pan.
Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the tops are golden brown. While they are cooking, whisk together the glaze ingredients. When the rolls come out of the oven, drizzle with the glaze. Serve warm!
