EASY Orange Rolls

By Sydney Hill

I chose this one for three reasons.

  1. I have been craving some orange rolls lately. The sweet/tart combo is tasty as can be.
  2. I've been thinking of them because my wonderful mother used to make these all the time at Christmas. I remember her dropping them off at my grandparents house when she did a twelve days of Christmas for them. She probably did it for others, too.
  3. Oranges are on sale most places. 'Tis the season to be jolly and to have oranges in season.
  4. Okay, I know I said three, but I kept thinking of more. This recipe is easy, because you get to use the classic but ingenious frozen dinner rolls. Yummy food in a jiffy.

So enjoy these easy orange rolls, and maybe spread some Christmas cheer by sharing with a neighbor.
